The new pool was launched in October with a total of 13 ships. Some 11 come from an existing Singapore-based joint venture between NYK and Stolt Tankers – NYK Stolt Shipholdings, and two vessels in the pool are from ENEOS Ocean.
“We have a strong relationship with Stolt Tankers, boasting unrivaled experience spanning over 30 years in the chemical tanker business. Additionally, we have a deep trust-based relationship with ENEOS Ocean, primarily in the field of crude oil tankers. We are delighted to have taken this step into the chemical tanker pool operation based on these relationships,” said NYK Executive Officer, Yuji Nishijima.
ENEOS Ocean Corporation Director, Executive Officer Masahito Hirano, commented: “Through this pool, we aim to provide detailed and attentive transportation services to meet the diversifying needs of customers and achieve greater safety in operations. Additionally, we are committed to addressing specific environmental measures to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment.”
Stolt Tankers sees the pool as expanding its presence in the Asia – Pacific region.
