Conti Guinea brightens up the Basin

The product tanker Conti Guinea provided a bright red spot in Bedford Basin today. It arrived last night, giving New Orleans as its last port. Flying the flag of Liberia it also advertises the United Product Tanker pool, UPT, which operates out of Hamburg. The ship is also German owned, by NSB Niderelbe of Buxtehude.

UPT, also with offices in Stamford, CT, and Limassol, Cyprus  manages more than thirty similar handymax tankers, including five sister ships with Conti surnames. It was built in 2008 by the prolific Hyundai, Mipo of South Korea, and measures 23,403 grt, 37,554 deadweight. Its tanks are epoxy lined, allowing it to carry a range of petroleum products and chemicals.
There should be a clear berth at Imperial Oil as soon as tomorrow.
