Chinese chemical tanker sepcialist Dingheng Shipping has brought two chemical tankers into its fleet through bareboat charter agreements.
The company has chartered the 2001-built 13,700 dwt Stenstraum from Norwegian owner Stenersen and the 2009-built 11,600 dwt Singapore Pioneer from South Korean owner Wooil Marine.
The two vessels have expanded Dingheng’s fleet of 24 vessels including 15 self-owned. The company also has another four chemical tankers on order.
Dingheng Shipping commenced an ambitious expansion plan in 2018 to build a fleet of 100 small and medium size chemical tankers with capacity ranging from 2,000 dwt to 15,000 dwt.
