P-MAX Stena Progress Named in Split

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Concordia Maritime’s product tanker Stena Progress was named at Brodosplit Shipyard in Split. On delivery, the vessel will enter a five-year charter with the French energy company Total. The Stena Progress is the seventh tanker of ten in the so-called P-MAX series.

The godmother was Mrs. Wei Ling Sim, Chartering Manager at Total in Singapore. The master is Captain Steven Targett.

The P-MAX sister vessels Stena Paris, Stena Provence and Stena Perros are also chartered to Total. The first P-MAX tanker was delivered in December 2005 and delivery of the tenth unit is set for 2010.

Concordia Maritime’s policy is to build tankers with proactive safety. The P-MAX tankers thus have double hulls, optimum corrosion control, two engine rooms with full water and fire integrity and two propulsion systems. Their manoeuvrability together with an integrated bridge layout facilitates safe navigation in narrow channels.

The P-MAX tankers have the following technical data:
Length    183 m
Breadth    131.2 ft
Draft    37 ft
Deadweight    65,200 tons
