The company will initially manage 18 chemical tankers with a target of managing 30 such tankers over the next two years.

Golden-Agri Stena managing director Björn Stignor said: “After six very successful years operating and managing intermediate-sized chemical tankers, Golden-Agri Stena aspires to enhance its involvement in the chemicals cargo trade through operating and managing stainless steel tankers.

“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.
