#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.

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.
