These four sister ships mark a milestone in Odfjell’s history. Built to the highest specifications and with the most sophisticated equipment available on the market.
“Our customers require predictability and reliability: Their products need to arrive on time and on specification. Odfjell takes pride in delivering high-quality services. This is appreciated by our customers – many have been with us for more than 30 years. This loyalty is something that we must earn, and we earn it through safe and reliable operations day after day, year after year. These new buildings are important contributors to our safe and reliable services.”
COO Harald Fotland
The naming ceremony at the Hudong-Zhongua shipyard gathers nearly one hundred guests; representatives of the yard, banks, Class, the ships’ Shipboard Management Teams, management in Odfjell Tankers and Ship Management, and the special guests of honor: the Lady Sponsors, Christine Rødsæther and Linna Fan.
“To be the lady sponsor of the world's most efficient, largest, sophisticated and eco-friendly super segregator is indeed a great honor and a role for which I am very proud and truly grateful. As a board member of Odfjell for ten years, I supported the choice of Hudong Ship Yard to build Bow Odyssey and the three sister vessels, and there is no doubt that this was the right decision”
“It is my great pleasure to be selected as the lady sponsor of the beautiful vessel Bow Optima. I am deeply honored that Odfjell and my employer Bocom Leasing have given me this opportunity. I wish the vessel and her crew smooth winds, calm seas and ample water under her keel and always a safe return to her destination.”
