“Golden-Agri Stena aspires to enhance its involvement in the chemicals cargo trade through operating and managing stainless steel tankers.”

Established in 2012, Golden-Agri Stena is a JV between global tanker shipping company Stena Bulk and Indonesian palm oil producer Golden Agri-Resources.

Bay Crest Management Board director Shinsuke Togawa said: “Riding on prior success in managing stainless steel chemical tankers in the region, Bay Crest Management is keen to further extend its footprint internationally.

“The good brand name of Golden-Agri Stena, coupled with its extensive experience in trading vegetable oil and clean petroleum products, makes them an ideal equal partner for achieving our ambition.”

Bay Crest Management was formed in 2013 to serve the chemical tanker owners. With offices in Singapore and Japan, it has so far managed more than 30 tankers.
