A new tailor-made vessel entered Odfjell’s 80 ship fleet on June 24, 2020. The newbuilt 36,000 dwt chemical tanker joins sister ship Bow Prosper in our round-the-world trade, adding further flexibility and leading services to our customers.
Since the naming ceremony in January, the Japanese yard, the crew, Odfjell’s Ship Management team, shipowner Taihei, vendors and suppliers have put the final touches on the specially designed supersegregator. With the past months of pandemic challenges, the milestone of the handover from the yard to owner was extra welcomed and celebrated.
The Norwegian flag was hoisted on board before the ship left the Fukuoka shipyard and embarked on her maiden voyage to Sandakan port in Malaysia.
Bow Persistent and Bow Prosper have leading technology and features that are tailored for the advanced chemical tanker segment. The sister ships are two of a total 30 new ships to enter Odfjell’s fleet between 2017 and 2020.
Bow Persistent joins the fleet on bareboat charter from owner Taihei, and will be commercially managed by Odfjell Tankers, technically managed by Odfjell Ship Management and manned by Odfjell seafarers.
