Stolt-Nielsen S.A. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group (SNTG), has acquired two parcel tankers, each of approximately 8,600 deadweight tons, to meet growing customer demand in the Company's inter-European service.

SNTG expects to take delivery of the ships between July and November of this year.

Both ships were built to IMO II standards in 1999 by the Usuki Shipyard Co. Ltd. of Japan. Features include double hulls, fully stainless steel tanks, and 20 segregations per ship. M/T Bow Wave and M/T Bow Wind will be renamed M/T Stolt Skua and M/T Stolt Teal, respectively.
