In 2004, Chambal decided to enter the energy transportation sector and acquired India Steamship Company Limited, one of India's oldest shipping companies.
Today, India Steamship has a fleet capacity of over 4,00,000 DWT in the form of four Aframax tankers.
- Ratna Shruti
- Ratna Shradha
- Ratna Namrata
- Ratna Shalini
In line with international shipping standards, all the Aframax tankers are double hull and built in 2008 and later. Three new Aframax Tankers of about 105,000 DWT each joined the fleet between April and July 2008. The latest addition is 'Ratna Shalini' which joined the fleet in the first quarter of 2010.
Chambal's robust financial strength and market standing has added muscle to India Steamship. Simultaneously, its corporate strategy is being re-aligned to make it more agile and customer focused in today's competitive global environment.
