FEELING YOUNG. SAILING YOUNG
The initial 5 ships that TCT took off with in 2011 have meanwhile been joined by another 25, all owned by our principals. Measuring up to 140 meters long, the Intermediate and Medium Range tankers - deep sea and coastal – that we operate can ship roughly between 10,700 and 30,000 metric tons of chemicals, commodities and edible oils. Some vessels even have a capacity of up to 50,000 tons.
In spite of the actual life expectancy of around 30 years, most chemical tankers ‘retire’ at the age of 15 or so. To guarantee our clients modern, innovative equipment we insist on sailing with relatively new vessels. While other tank operators often work with ships that are way past their economic lifetime, our oldest ship was built only 8 years ago.
