H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to name Stenaweco Impulse in Copenhagen

The chemical and product tanker Stenaweco Impulse will be named in Copenhagen on 13 June. Her godmother will be H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and the naming ceremony will take place on Langelinie Quay attended by guests from all over the world.

The Stenaweco Impulse is the sixth in a series of 13 IMOIIMAX tankers ordered by Stena Bulk. The vessel is owned by Stena Weco in a joint venture between Swedish Stena Bulk and Danish Weco Shipping. It was built by the Chinese Shipyard GSI (Guangzhou Shipbuilding International).

The innovative technical design, developed by Stena Teknik together with the shipyard, offers extra large cargo flexibility, a high level of safety and economical fuel consumption. When sailing at service speed, the fuel consumption is 10-20% lower than that of equivalent vessels.
