Dutch shipowning company Unifleet has committed six chemical tankers from its newbuilding programme to new operator North Sea Tankers.

These are two 7,500 dwt IMO II MarineLine coated chemical tankers, due for delivery in 3Q09/early 2010 and four 5,000 dwt IMO II fitted with stainless steel tanks, due for delivery from late 2010 through 2011.

Unifleet currently has a newbuilding programme of 12 vessels in Chinese yards. The remaining six vessels have been fixed on long term timecharter to major European operators.

At present, Unifleet controls a fleet of six ships, all of which are employed on timecharter to major European operators and oil companies.

North Sea Tankers opened its doors in December last year and currently commercially operates the 5,667 dwt Bernhard Schulte-managed chemical tanker ‘Cappadocian’.

The company intends to build up both commercial and technical departments and is currently based in the same building as Unifleet, just outside Rotterdam.
