Odfjell successful launched its newbuilt chemical tanker

Odfjell's extensive fleet renewal continues. The newbuilt chemical tanker Bow Prosper was launched and officially named in Japan.

The 36,000 dwt, 28 tanks stainless steel vessel adds efficient, advanced and eco-friendly tonnage to Odfjell's commercially managed fleet.

Bow Prosper is part of one of the most comprehensive fleet renewals in Odfjell’s 105-year history. The 49,000 dwt Bow Orion has already entered into trade. Her three sister vessels are currently under construction and will enter the fleet in 2020.

The official launch ceremony at Fukuoka Shipyard in Nagasaki was witnessed by guests from Odfjell, the yard and ship owner Taihei, among others.
