#Ardmore - Ardmore Shipping operators of chemical and product tankers (25,000 to 50,000dwt) has selected the UK P&I Club as its second P&I club.
On the back of the steady growth in the size of the Ardmore fleet which now stands at 27 ships, Ardmore decided to select a second club to provide Protection and Indemnity cover.
Commenting on the decision, Georgina Alderman, Ardmore’s Marine and Insurance Manager, said: “We looked at a number of options, including other UK based clubs, but we felt that the UK Club represented the best fit with our requirements, as well as with our ethos as an owner and operator committed to the highest standards of commercial and operational practices.
She added "We are looking forward to working together with the UK Club as an important partner for Ardmore Shipping.”
The UK Club will provide cover for three ships in Ardmore’s fleet.
As previously reported on Afloat, Jorge Lavin was recently appointed as the company's Financial Controller.
