SAXEN outbound

Another outbound ship seen today was the tanker SAXEN. She started life in 1989 as SKUTSKÄR, a ship capable, according to her entry in Lloyd's Register, of carrying 'general, container and oil cargoes'. Built by Van der Giessen-de Noord at Krimpen an der Ijsssel, she was sold in 1993 and renamed COLDSTREAM MERCHANT. Three years later, she was sold again, and renamed SAXEN. In 2005 she was given a major refit in Poland, emerging as a double-hulled tanker and meeting the latest regulations. She is owned by Ahlmarco BV, a Dutch company which appears to be a subsidiary of the similarly named Ahlmark Lines of Sweden, and technical management is entrusted to Marin Ship Management. Her commercial managers are Iver Lundh & Co, a Swedish company. She is 99.55 metres overall, and has a summer deadweight of 6,279 tonnes.
