Product and chemical tanker specialist Ardmore Shipping has taken delivery of the Ardmore Seaventure from SPP Shipbuilding in Korea and immediately delivered the tanker to Cargill on a 12 month time charter arrangement.

The Ardmore Seaventure is a 49,999 deadweight ton (dwt) IMO 3 product and chemical tanker and the second vessel to be delivered to Ardmore Shipping from a series of four orders placed with SPP Shipbuilding, Korea.

The Ardmore Seaventure follows SPP's design for this class of vessel and includes a number of additional specifications for improved fuel efficiency, including a MAN B&W electronic engine, combined with a Mewis Duct and high performance hull coating from International Paint, together with SkySails' Performance Monitor voyage optimisation system. The Ardmore Seaventure has also been verified by ABS in accordance with the IMO's Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI).

The Ardmore Seaventure is the eighth vessel in Ardmore's fleet of product and chemical tankers, with a combined total tonnage of over 300,000 dwt and an average vessel age of five years old. Ardmore expects to take delivery of the third and fourth vessels, also 49,999-dwt IMO 3 product and chemical tankers, from SPP Shipbuilding in early 2014.

The Ardmore Seavaliant, the first of Ardmore's newbuild vessels, was delivered by SPP Shipbuilding in February 2013 and has also been chartered to Cargill for a 12-month period.
