The oil tanker ESSO Stuttgart was built in 1958 by the yard Howaldtswerke in Hamburg. The story of her shipping company, the ESSO Tankschiff
Reederei, goes back to a German logistics company from 1863 that became part of the the DAPG (Deutsche-Amerikanische Petroleum
Gesellschaft/German American Petrol Company) in 1890. In 1924 the shipping company was named Waried Tankschiff Reederei. It became the
ESSO Tankschiff Reederei in 1950. In 1984 her tanker ships came under the management of Exxon International and the company was reduced
to her fluvial logistics department until she went out of busyness in 1993.
The International Maritime Museum owns several yard models of ESSO tankers. The size and weight of this beauties dont allow us to display them
all at once in the permanent exhibition. We wanted to share this model from our depot with you. It is built of metal and wood in a scale of 1:100,
which makes it over 2,25 meters long.
