Addition to the fleet

Trans Chemica – ex name Stolt Jasmine

After having been looking for the right candidate for some time we are happy to announce that on the 17th of April we signed at deal to take over Trans Chemica_2the MT ‘Stolt Jasmine’ with delivery in Japan on the 8th of May. The vessel will transfer flag to Malta and change name to MT Trans Chemica and thereafter sail for a dry-dock and painting job in China.

By early June she should start picking up a cargo program on her way to Europe. When that voyage is completed she will start in the SCT service on the Continent – Mediterranean trade sometime in July.

The vessel is 12500 dwt, with 20 stainless steel cargo tanks. She was built in 2005 and is also fitted to carry propylene oxide. She will be a welcomed addition to our European service and will add flexibility and increase our service level for our European customers.

Trans Chemica will be re-classed in the DNV-GL register and be on BB charterer to the Seatrans Group and run under Seatrans Ship management. After the first 18 months the Ownership will be transferred to one of the Seatrans ship owning companies.

We wish each other the very best of luck with this new ship in the Seatrans Chemical Tanker fleet.

New vessel: Trans Borg

The Trans Borg (ex Irene) is 12.000 dwt and has 24 stainless steel cargo-tanks. After we took delivery of the vessel late 2012 in Singapore we fixed her with a palmoil program from Malaysia to the Mediterranean. Since then she has been partly trading and partly been through a systematic upgrading program to make her fully fit for our parcel trade between North Europe and the Mediterranean. With her tank configuration and size she fits this trade very well and shall, together with Trans Adriatic, contribute well to the Seatrans Chemical Tankers pool. We have already taken advantage of the good work performed both onboard and on shore to prepare the ship to a condition that fully satisfy our customers expectations.
