mt Stena Arctica under Finnish flag

OSM Finland has 30.01.2017 taken over the management for mv STENA ARCTICA.

OSM is honoured that Glacia Ltd has decided to choose OSM to provide full management for this fine vessel. OSM TMS Helsinki office was the preferred supplier for Ice Classed tanker due to their long history of successful management of Ice Classed tankers in sub-zero environment and Stena Arctica with a 1A Super Ice Class falls perfectly to our existing fleet.

Flag change from UK to Finnish Flag was adding one challenge to the take-over process, first OSM Finland/OSM Crew Management Manila execution of Finnish Mixed Crew Set Up (50% Finnish and 50% Philippine) another. A swift take-over with the least disruption for the schedule of the vessel was only possible because of a detailed take-over process plan and teamwork amongst all concerned.
