Chinese shipyard GSI (Guangzhou Shipbuilding International) has delivered the newly built MR tanker Stena Imagination to 50-50 joint owners Stena Bulk and Indonesian Golden Agri Resources (GAR). She will be operated by Stena Weco and sail in the company’s global logistics system, which currently employs about 60 vessels.

Stena Imagination is the seventh of 13 IMOIIMAX tankers ordered by Stena Bulk. Three of the 13 IMOIIMAX tankers are wholly owned by Stena Bulk, six together with GAR, two by Stena Bulk’s sister company Concordia Maritime and two by Stena Weco.
Previous deliveries include the Stena Impression, Stena Image, Stena Imperial and Stena Important in 2015, as well as the Stena Imperative and Stenaweco Impulse earlier this year.
The remaining six vessels are scheduled to be delivered every third month going forward, with the final vessel arriving in 2018. 
The IMOIIMAX design is a development of an already established concept, developed by Stena Teknik together with the shipyard GSI. It offers extra large cargo flexibility, a high level of safety and low fuel consumption – 10-20 percent lower than that of equivalent vessels when sailing at service speed.
