Stolt Parcel Purchases Four Chemical Parcel Tankers From Danish Interest
Stolt Parcel Tankers Inc. purchased four 4,700-dwt chemical parcel tankers from Finansieringsselskabet Gefion A/S, Denmark. Acquisition of the ships provides the company with one of the most modern and competitive coastal chemical tanker fleets in Europe.

The four vessels were built in 1991 and 1992 at Aarhus Flydedok in Denmark, and are IMO type 2/3 ships, with 14 stainless steel cargo tanks each. Delivery of the ships is expected to be completed by March, and the tankers will be renamed M/T Stolt Dipper, Stolt Tern, Stolt Kite and Stolt Petrel. Stolt Parcel Tankers Inc. is part of the Stolt-Nielsen S.A. group, which provides transportation services for bulk liquid chemicals and other specialty liquids through its parcel tanker, tank container, terminal, rail and barge services.
