New concept for transport of oil products

A few new buildings have visited CMP during the last month.

The first vessel was Stena Perros. The ship docked February 17th at Malmö oil terminal to load 13,200 tons of Gasoil from "Vopack Logistic Nordic AB". Stena Perros docked at quay m1004. The vessel arrived from Antwerp and departed for Vyborg.

Friday week 9 Stena President docked at Prøvestenen loading Vacuum Gas Oil (VGO) from Oiltanking. Afterwards Stena President sailed for Malmö Oljehamnen to load more VGO from Scandinavian Tank Storage.

Both vessels are new buildings Stena Perros was delivered in 2008; Stena President was delivered in 2007. Both vessels are of the type "P-Max ice class 1B". The idea to create this Max concept was to establish a fleet of vessels capable of docking in ports where the water depth could cause a problem. The series of vessels have a very large beam in respect of their length. As a consequence the draft is less and they are capable of carrying a larger volume of cargo. The vessels can transport up to 30% more than traditional constructed vessels with the same draft. Add to this, the fact, that a series of innovations are implemented to increase safety in design.

Both vessels are 182,90 meters long, beam 40,00 meters and draft fully loaded is 13,00 meters, DWT 65,200. The vessels was build at Brodosplit Shipyard in Croatia
