UPT times two in the Basin

A second UPT tanker arrived in Bedford Basin early yesterday morning to join another UPT tanker that has been there since September 26.

The newer arrival is Mount Kibo a product tanker of 23,313 grt, 37,843 dwt and virtually the same size as the Conti Guinea (23,403 grt, 37,554 dwt) but is two years newer, built in 2010. Both come from the Hyundai Mipo shipyard in Korea, and were built to the same design.

Mount Kibo flies the Liberian flag and is owned by Frisia Dusselforf KG and managed by (Hartmann) Donnelly Tanker Management of Limassol, Cyprus.

 Mount Kibo anchored in the Basin with a yacht club race buoy alongside this evening.

Conti Guinea already lit up for the night. 

Both ships operate in the United Product Tankers Pool, but continue to wear the colours of their respective owners. UPT pools the tankers of seven or more German owners and manages their commercial activities.
