Bow Orion was shortlisted in company with two other newbuildings. Tonight, it was confirmed that Odfjell’s ship came out on top. Kristian Mørch, CEO says, “This is a proud moment for us, and it is in every respect a team win. Not only for the Odfjell team, but for the many quality partners that have been involved with their expertise, equipment, innovations and technology. The concept is Odfjell’s, and our inhouse team and site managers have done an amazing job throughout. In close collaboration with the shipyard and carefully chosen suppliers, Bow Orion has truly become the flagship we aimed for”.
Bow Orion is the first delivery of a total four sister ships in Odfjell’s so-called Hudong class. To date, these are the world’s largest and most energy-efficient stainless steel chemical tankers.
Stacked with the latest in equipment and technology, the ships show groundbreaking results in operational efficiency. VP Newbuildings, Geir Almestad, proudly accepted the award on Odfjell’s behalf at the ceremony in London this evening.
Bow Orion is registered in Bergen, Norway, and flies the Norwegian flag. In relation to the award, Riviera Maritime today covered the story behind Bow Orion and the Hudong class, headlined ‘The rise of the super-segregator stainless-steel parcel tanker’.
