    We have a long-standing, highly-valued relationship with Petrobras when it comes to both Suezmax and MR tankers and we are committed to continue to provide them with safe and efficient deliveries. We also hope to expand our relationship in the future
    Erik Hånell, CEO and President of Stena Bulk
    As part of our business strategy, we continue to cater for Petrobras’ shipping requirements as a preferred customer and logistical partner of Stena Bulk. Over the years we have developed a close working relationship and our latest commitment of time chartering out the Stena Conqueror and the Stena Conquest are good examples of our continued efforts of supporting Petrobras throughout their supply chain
    Claes Leschly Bang, General Manager & Head of Stena Bulk Products & Chemicals USA
    Being ‘first in China’ is a very rare title and we are all proud we participated in such an event. Each one of the operations was distinct as each piece of terminal equipment was being operationally used for the first time. It took resourcefulness, patience and a problem-solving attitude, but it was a successful operation
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO Stena Bulk.
    Events of this nature are subject to international laws and for us, acting in accordance with these laws is a matter of course. Nevertheless, it is important that attention is drawn to them – in this case, by the Chamber of Shipping of America. I would also like to take the opportunity to express my appreciation to our crew on board for having acted professionally and in accordance with our expectations in this situation
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO, Stena Bulk
    In what has generally speaking been a stable low market, we have recently seen opportunities to utilise our business model in the current market. With our successful commercial management, we believe, despite continuing rather difficult conditions, that we can make a positive difference and have thus now chartered in six vessels. We are in a good position to expand our pool to about 30 Suexmax tankers and expect to do so with the help of partners and chartered tonnage. We are continuously evaluating the market and acting accordingly
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO, Stena Bulk
    We now have a relatively long history, when it comes to our joint pool, with a long-term partner. The pool arrangement has many advantages, not only logistic, but mostly, the biggest reason, which includes having a larger market position and, in general, an opportunity to spread the risks resulting from the fluctuations in a volatile market. Opportunities are as well arising from joint developments with a partner with shared views. Access to our global coverage with support and a high utilisation rate due to our operational excellence are also important factors
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO, Stena Bulk
    We have been extremely successful and are one of the leaders when it comes to earnings, both compared with the index and with competing pools and Suezmax fleets
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO, Stena Bulk
    It was exactly three years ago that we took delivery of our first vessel in the IMOIIMAX series and the vessels have performed beyond our expectations. Both the technical and the commercial concepts have proved to be very successful and have set a new standard for cargo efficiency and bunker consumption. With the delivery of the Stena Impero, the IMOIIMAX fleet is now complete, in line with the order, and is a significant and competitive addition to our high-quality fleet. At the same time, it is an important step forward and a development of our existing sophisticated trading system
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk
    With the last vessel now delivered, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the shipyard GSI for fantastic collaboration with Stena Teknik during the development of the technology and during the three long years of production
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk
    This ship naming ceremony using available technology is a sign of the times. Our goal is greater efficiency in everything we do and, accordingly, a digital naming ceremony symbolises a measure of sustainability, efficiency and new technology. This is what we are striving for and we want to be at the forefront of this process
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk
    This is a natural transition from the old structure to the new one where we now have total control over our business involving product and chemicals transportation in the MR segment. This and other adjustments will result in a clearer structure as regards our business and organisation
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO, Stena Bulk
    After many years working with, among other things, the creation and development of the successful Sonangol pool, I am looking forward to taking greater responsibility in this business area
    Mats Karlsson, Managing Director, Crude & Fuel
    I have held a leading position at Stena Weco since it was started up 6,5 years ago and I am happy to have a key role in the incorporation of the two companies’ business into a single business
    Johnny Schmolker, Managing Director, Products & Chemicals
    It was a spectacular sight with the two sister tankers beside each other and the somewhat unusual situation as such made the naming ceremony a bit special and extra festive. We are now approaching the final delivery of our large order consisting of 13 IMOIIMAX tankers. We are very proud of and satisfied with our fleet, which now consists of ten units in operation. Both the technical and the commercial concept have proved to be very successful
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO, Stena Bulk
    The Port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and our fleet often calls there. That’s why we also have many business contacts there and we took the opportunity to gather them in conjunction with this naming ceremony
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk
    We are convinced that the tanker industry will change drastically in the future. To prepare for this we have a team of people working fulltime to make sure that we are fully aware of what is happening in the world, how it will affect us, and lead the company in a transformative way. One important aspect of this is the transformative power of digitalization. We need to stay up to date on different technologies and how to use them
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO Stena Bulk
    We think, however, that Blockchain will affect us and that it has the potential to revolutionise the tanker industry in terms of making the business process safer and more efficient. We will definitely not stand still just waiting for that to happen
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO Stena Bulk
    Naming the Stena Imagination in Dubai is very much a strategic choice. Stena Bulk recently opened an office here together with Stena Weco and Golden Stena Weco. We already had a presence in the market in the region but wanted to get even closer to our customers. The naming ceremony gives us the opportunity to further reinforce our image and forge more contacts with customers, partners and suppliers in the region
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO of Stena Bulk and CEO of Stena Weco
    As both owner and operator, Stena Bulk is exposed to all areas of tanker shipping and thus has a twofold responsibility to be at the forefront of developments. We have long focused on technical development and have created solutions both on board and ashore that have raised awareness. But it has also been important to not only focus on technology for reducing bunker consumption but also to work with a commercial focus on using fuel more efficiently. Since it was implemented in 2012, our Energy Management system has increased our fuel efficiency by 20%; this is equivalent to 30,000 mt of fuel and savings of 100,000 mt as regards CO2 emissions. In recent years, our leading role when it comes to digital technology has taken us even further and we are currently working with tools that will enable us to predict the market in different ways. With new platforms, we are now transforming shipping as regards efficiency and transparency
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    We are very proud of this award and we thank everybody who voted for us and for recognising our work in this important area
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    After six very successful years and operational collaboration, the two companies’ ambitions for the future have changed. With the agreement now reached, which means that Stena Weco will be 100% owned by Stena Bulk, this situation has now been solved in a way that benefits both parties
    Erik Hånell
    We are proud to have been part of the successful Stena Weco journey and very pleased that we have been able to reach the perfect solution for both partners in Stena Weco, also for the future
    Johan Wedell-Wedellsborg
    Almost exactly two years have passed since the delivery of our first IMOIIMAX tanker and the vessels are continuing to perform beyond our expectations. The concept has set a new standard for both cargo efficiency and bunkers consumption. With number nine of the13 vessels on order soon out on the market, this tanker will be yet another addition to our high-quality fleet. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the shipyard GSI for fantastic collaboration during both the technological development and construction
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO, Stena Bulk
    Generally speaking, Dubai is an important meeting place for the oil industry as well as being situated strategically close to Iran, which is now beginning to open up to increased trade. Stena’s tanker business already has a presence in the area with contacts in the neighbouring region. The office will make even closer contacts possible with customers, partners and suppliers. In addition, many shipping companies are already active in the area
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk and CEO of Stena Weco
    I'd just like to say that I was lucky to be passing, in the right place and time, and I only did what anyone in my position would have done
    John L Burton, captain
    When we first saw the ship lights at night and heard the captain´s voice on the radio, we felt relieved. Then, this giant ship came towards us. We were really impressed by its size next to our little sailing boat. All we could see was the giant dragon face painted on the side becoming bigger and bigger. That was really scary. Thanks to the captain´s perfect maneuverer, we were able to come on board “sain et sauf” The crew was welcoming and worry about our well-being. We were exhausted so they brought us to a cabin, covered us with food and drinks. We finally slept an entire night, the first time in a long time!
    Pablo and Marion, the rescued couple
    When an event like Tall Ships Regatta, connected to the ocean, comes to our home town it´s a privilege to be involved and support it. One of the organizers main purposes is to develop and educate young people through the sail experience and maybe some of these young sailors one day even might end up working for us on board the Stena vessels somewhere around the world
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO Stena Bulk and Carl-Johan Hagman, Head of Shipping and Ferries at Stena and CEO for Stena
    Now, already after a year in operation, it is clear that the IMOIIMAX tankers have met our expectation in every way. The technical design is, of course, extremely important, but the fact that the vessels are operated successfully in the Stena Weco-system with its well-functioning logistics is the real key to success
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    From the beginning, we had great expectations when it came to function and results since IMOIIMAX is a further development of an established and successful concept. Now, after a year in operation, it is clear that the vessels have met all our expectations in terms of both technical and commercial performance
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    We are very satisfied with the performance of the IMOIIMAX tankers and are thus adding to this part of our fleet still further. With their greater efficiency as regards fuel consumption and cargo, these vessels are also environmentally superior compared to many other vessels in their class, which, of course, is a major advantage. Commercially, they are a good complement to our fleet
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    We are very pleased with the performance of the IMOIIMAX tankers delivered so far. They have already fulfilled all our expectations. The configuration of several small tanks provides for considerable flexibility in regards of cargo combination, something that fits very well within our existing global logistical systems. Additionally, innovative technical solutions have, for example, resulted in lower fuel consumption and have also proved to be very effective in conjunction with discharging and tank cleaning
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    This year’s sailing week has been a great success at every level. Apart from being able to offer unusually exciting world-class match racing, it has been a fantastically festive occasion. The warm and sunny weather meant that more visitors than usual came to Marstrand, but we’re also very happy that so many of our customers and employees could take part
    Lena Alvling, General Manager Marketing & Corporate Events, Stena Bulk AB
    During the week, Stena invested more than ever before in different activities, seminars and exposure on our stands, all of which was very much appreciated. We also had more than 1,500 guests in the form of customers, partners and other important stakeholders at our many seminars
    Lovisa Andersson, Marketing & Branding, Stena Metall AB
    One of our goals is to expand the pool to about 30 Suezmax tankers. We expect to achieve this with the help of partners and chartering in vessels, but we are also looking at purchasing. However, we are waiting to see how the market develops and are continuously evaluating which alternative is the most suitable
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    The pool set-up has numerous advantages, such as getting access to a larger market position and, in general, the ability to spread the risks arising as a result of fluctuations in a volatile market. Access to our global network with support and a high utilisation rate as a result of our operational excellence are also important factors”, says Erik Hånell. “We have been extremely successful and are one of the foremost, compared to both the index and other competing pools. Our pool has been the best performing Suezmax pool for 9 of 10 years, which is largely a result of our customer focus where innovation, performance and quality are a priority
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    In recent years, we have expanded with the addition of a number of in-house designed Suezmax tankers of the latest design and with the highest environmental class. In our strategic investments, we focus very much on energy efficiency and, with the help of our technical development department, we make sure that we are at the cutting edge when it comes to both safety and the environment. But we are also evaluating our existing vessels in order to find solutions for further fuel savings
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    We are pleased with the charter signed with the North West Shelf Project, which we view as a key strategic partner within a market with tremendous growth prospects. As always, we take the long-term view and are looking forward to developing the potential we see here
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    Since 2011, we have very quickly become established in the transportation of liquid natural gas and we have developed a good reputation in the market where quality and safety are paramount. We regard the LNG segment as a continuing and long-term investment where, additionally, our successful technical management plays a prominent role
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    The IMOIIMAX tankers will be a significant addition to our successful collaboration with Golden Agri. At the same time, it is a further step in the development of our existing sophisticated trading system
    Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk
    Flexibility and energy savings are key characteristics of the IMOIIMAX concept. The configuration of several small tanks provides for considerable freedom of choice as regards cargo combination, something that fits in very well with our existing global logistics system. The fact that the concept, with its many innovative technical solutions, will result in energy savings is naturally a major advantage

    Stena Bulk is delighted to become a member of the World Ocean Council. Sustainable business practices and sustainable seas require a global strategy. This international industrial platform allows us and other responsible members of the maritime trade to partner with like-minded companies from other sectors. Working as one, we are better equipped to handle the sustainability challenges facing current and future generations of our business
    In today’s market, it is very important that we shipowners utilise our existing fleet in the best possible way from an energy and environmental perspective and carefully investigate the potential for improvement, both technological and operational
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO of Stena Bulk
    In recent years, we have expanded our fleet with the addition of a number of in-house designed Suezmax tankers with the highest environmental class. In our strategic investments, we are focusing on energy efficiency and with the help of our technical development department, we are always on the cutting edge when it comes to safety and the environment. However, existing vessels are also being evaluated in order to save fuel and economise
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO of Stena Bulk
    The vessels’ technical design is a key factor, but how vessels are operated in terms of energy management is just as important. When it comes to the design and operational excellence of its latest vessels, Stena Bulk has been successful in both these areas
    Erik Hånell, President & CEO of Stena Bulk
    The development of the Maritime Training Centre has been a natural step for Stena Bulk in our close relation with Sonangol where education has been one of the fundamental questions since we started our Joint Venture through Stena Sonangol Suezmax Pool
    Erik Hånell, CEO Stena Bulk
    The investment in the project by Sonangol and Stena will ensure the long term success of the project, and will also bring added value by employing people from the surrounding area, and therefore contribute to the local economy and infrastructure to the benefit of the life condition of the local community
    Erik Hånell, CEO Stena Bulk
    With the new investment in this segment, we are entering a new chapter in our collaboration with Golden Agri-Resources. These tankers will transport chemicals and vegetable oils on an international basis
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk and President of Stena Weco.
    Golden Stena Weco, with its head office in Singapore, is now responsible for the commercial operation of eight jointly owned chemical tankers as well as a number of time-chartered vessels. This investment is yet another step in building up our joint venture. We see this as part of the strategy of capturing market shares in Asia in particular with the long-term aim of establishing a presence, via our close partners, in new areas in this segment with the possibility of developing on other continents
    Erik Hånell, President and CEO of Stena Bulk and President of Stena Weco.
    For the last three years, we, that is Stena Bulk/Stena LNG together with Northern Marine Management, which has been responsible for the technical management, have built up a very good name in the LNG segment – an industry segment undergoing expansive development and one that we judge will be very interesting indeed in the next few years
