On February 13, 2017 we were proud to witness the naming of the Torben Spirit – the newest addition to our gas fleet. It was a historical occasion, as the ship was named in recognition of our late founder J. Torben Karlshoej and Torben’s daughter Yumi Karlshoej was the lady sponsor of the vessel. This was the second Torben Spirit to enter the Teekay fleet. In 1994, the first Torben Spirit (a conventional oil tanker) was launched by Aiko Karlshoej, Torben’s widow and Yumi’s mother as the lady sponsor. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Yumi Karlshoej had the honor of seeing her late father’s legacy continue with the Torben Spirit entering into Teekay’s fleet once more.
