Another Ardmore Tanker As 'Sealion' Joins the Fleet

#ArdmoreNewbuild - Ardmore Sealion a 49,999dwt newbuild has been delivered to Ardmore Shipping from SPP Shipbuilding Co., Ltd at the Goseong shipyard in South Korea.

The launch of Ardmore Sealion classified as an IMO 3 product and chemical tanker took place on 26 May. She joins the Ardmore fleet, which now has nineteen vessels (see previous report on Afloat.ie). Technical management of the Ardmore Sealion will be provided by Univan Ship Management Ltd.

Commenting on her delivery, Mark Cameron, Ardmore Shipping's COO, said: "I would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Ardmore site team who have worked closely with the SPP Shipbuilding team in bringing the newbuilding process together to deliver a high quality vessel. We extend our thanks to SPP Shipbuilding for all of their hard work and commitment through the build process.

The Ardmore Sealion is another high quality eco-design Ardmore vessel and she is fully equipped with an array of fuel-saving measures, along with Skysails technology, to ensure the highest standards of performance for our customers.

This is our first newbuild vessel to be delivered from SPP Shipbuilding this year and we look forward to continuing our close working relationship with SPP Shipbuilding on the remaining three vessels in the series due for delivery throughout the year."

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.
