Finland-based shipping company ESL Shipping, part of the ASPO Group, has decided to reflag its new LNG-fueled bulk carrier Haaga to the Finnish flag.

According to the carrier of dry bulk cargoes in the Baltic region, the reflagging of the newbuilding Haaga is as a part of the agreement with unions. Flag change took place today in Kokkola, Finland.

"We found a constructive solution with unions and are proud to finally hoist the Finnish flag onboard the Haaga", says Mikki Koskinen, Managing Director of ESL Shipping.

"Having all owned vessels under Finnish flag gives us synergies in crew replacement and rotation as well as improves the competitiveness of the whole fleet through introduction of the fleet wide mixed crewing model," said a press note from the company.

ESL Shipping's main clients are the power generation, steel and chemical industries to whom we carry raw materials such as coal, iron ore and limestone. ESL Shipping Ltd has been in business close to 70 years.
