Wilhelmsen Ships Service has secured a two-year contract to supply chemicals and gases to Yang Ming Lines, in a deal valued at around $1m. The contract which was secured by Wilhelmsen Ships Service’s office in Taiwan will commence in early 2010. The company will supply marine chemicals, oxygen and acetylene gases, refrigerants and other gases at key ports including Shanghai, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong.
“We are very pleased to have gained this valuable contract with Yang Ming Lines” commented Fanyi Lu, Wilhelmsen Ships Service’s account manager in Taipei. “This customer has purchased our gases for over six years but this is the first time that we have secured an agreement to supply of chemicals to them.”
Yang Ming operates a fleet of 94 vessels with a 4.0-million-D.W.T, mainly container ships as well as 10 bulk carriers. The company transports more than 2.4 million TEUS (Twenty Feet Equivalent Units) a year.
