8th January 2015
New 25,000dwt Tanker Joins Ardmore Shipping Fleet

#NewbuildTanker- Ardmore Cherokee, a 25,000dwt products and chemical tanker became the newest addition to Ardmore Shipping Corporation, following delivery from a Japanese shipyard.

The IMO II classed tanker was completed by Fukoaka Shipbuilding and she is the fifteenth vessel to join Ardmore’s fleet in service under the technical management of Thome Ship Management. 

Like her fleetmates, Ardmore Cherokee, has been fitted with an array of fuel efficiency technologies, including the SkySails’ performance monitoring system, in order to deliver optimal operational performance. 

Mark Cameron, COO of Ardmore Shipping, commented: “We’re delighted to have taken delivery of the Ardmore Cherokee.  She has been designed and built to the very highest standards and we would like to thank all those involved in her successful delivery by Fukuoka Shipbuilding for their hard work and commitment. We wish her master and crew safe seas and look forward to her contribution to Ardmore’s continued growth.”

The corporation whose principle operating office based in Mahon Co. Cork as previously reported on Afloat.ie had reported a net profit of $117,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
