Seawolf Joins Pack of Ardmore Shipping Fleet

#NewSeaWolf - Ardmore Seawolf is the third newbuild in a series of tankers delivered to Ardmore Shipping Corporation.

The 49,999dwt IMO 3 product and chemical tanker was completed by SPP Shipbuilding from the Sacheon shipyard in South Korea and was handed over to her owners on 13 August.

The Ardmore Seawolf joins the fleet following a sister Ardmore Sealion which made a debut in June.

The addition of Ardmore Seawolf increases the number of Ardmore vessels on the water to 22. Technical management of the newbuild 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.

The Ardmore Seawolf is a high quality eco-design newbuild , equipped with a variety of fuel-saving measures, including Skysails vessel optimization software, and offering the highest standards of fuel efficiency and operational performance.

This is the third of four newbuild vessels to be delivered from SPP Shipbuilding this year. A remaining vessel in the series is due for delivery in the final quarter of this year.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
