Eitzen's tanker

1. Sichem Beijing arrives in drizzly Halifax weather.

Eitzen Chemical is one of the largest chemical tanker operators, with 83 ships currently listed in it fleet: http://www.eitzen-chemical.com/

A firm with deep roots, Eitzen has expanded through acquisitions to world wide operations with offices in Norway, Denmark, Spain, Connecticut and Singapore.

Today's arrival, Sichem Beijing, is fairly typical of the fleet - modest sized, 8,537 gross tons, 13,086 deadweight, relatively new, built in 2007, and highly specialized for carrying chemicals in epoxy coated tanks.

The ship is registered in Singapore, but operated by Seelandia Ship Management, based in Mumbai.
