Bow Orion enters Odfjell's fleet

16 September 2019

Bow Orion, the first of four new designed and new built chemical tankers, departed for Ulsan recently where it will load its first cargo.

With 33 cargo tanks in duplex stainless steel, a cargo capacity of approximately 55,000 cubic meters, engines that run at 75 rpm and consume 14% less fuel compared to the older vessels in the fleet, the sophisticated supersegregators will be among the world’s most efficient and eco-friendly.

Since the naming ceremony on July 1, Bow Orion has undergone extensive sea trials and shipyard testing.

On August 26 in Shanghai, China, Bow Orion officially entered Odfjell’s fleet and is now underway to Ulsan to load its very first cargo.
