Ardmore Shipping Corporation today announced that its latest newbuild vessel, the Ardmore Seawolf, was delivered by SPP Shipbuilding from the Sacheon shipyard in Korea on 13th August 2015.
The Ardmore Seawolf is a 49,999 DWT IMO 3 product and chemical tanker. Her addition to the Ardmore fleet increases the number of Ardmore vessels on the water to 22. Technical management of the Ardmore Seawolf will be provided by Univan Ship Management.
Commenting on her delivery, Mark Cameron, Ardmore Shipping’s COO, said:
“We are pleased to welcome the Ardmore Seawolf to the Ardmore fleet, where she will join her sister ships, the Ardmore Sealion and Ardmore Seafox. We extend our sincere thanks to SPP Shipbuilding for their diligence, commitment and excellence throughout the build process. The addition of the Ardmore Seawolf demonstrates our constant commitment to growing Ardmore’s fleet through the addition of state-of-the-art, high quality and efficient vessels to our fleet. With an average age of under four and a half years, the Ardmore fleet is among the youngest in the industry.
In keeping with her sister ships, the Ardmore Seawolf is a high quality eco-design Ardmore vessel, equipped with a variety of fuel-saving measures, including Skysails vessel optimization software, and offering the highest standards of fuel efficiency and operational performance for our customers.
This is the third of four newbuild vessels to be delivered from SPP Shipbuilding this year and we look forward to working closely with SPP Shipbuilding on the remaining vessel in the series, which is due for delivery in the final quarter of this year. We wish the Ardmore Seawolf and her crew fair winds and following seas as she goes on to fulfil her long and successful service within the Ardmore fleet.”
