On Friday, January 12, 2024, at the Sovena Terminal in Lisbon, a ceremony was held to name the ship of the Polish Steamship Company "Jamno".

Jamno, a 200-meter lake freighter of the Polish Steamship Company, was built in China in 2018, however, as reported by the shipowner, due to the global employment of the vessel, the unexpected period of the pandemic, and other market conditions, there was no earlier opportunity to conduct a christening ceremony in Poland or any other location. Therefore, the moment when the bulk carrier arrived in Lisbon with a load of sunflower was used. It was there that POLSTEAM organized the ceremony to name its unit.

The Godmother was a longtime employee of POLSTEAM, the Head of the Cargo Claims Section, Patrycja Żych, who, in accordance with tradition, uttered the characteristic words "Sail the seas and oceans of the world, glorify the name of the sailor - I name you Jamno" and broke a bottle on the ship's chimney while wishing the crew smooth sailing.


The naming ceremony was attended by a delegation from the POLSTEAM Group, including: Marcin Talwik, Vice President of POLSTEAM, Mirella Iwaniura, President of PAZIM and Vice Chairwoman of the POLSTEAM Godmothers Club, and Piotr Krakowski, Head of the Maritime Personnel Office at POLSTEAM. Also present were Captain Dariusz Buczek, who blessed the ship, the seafarers' chaplain Father Stanisław Flis, Senior Operational Operator Karolina Borchardt, and Mateusz Kantowicz from the Office of the Chief Executive.

Jamno is a 200-meter lake freighter with a deadweight tonnage of 36,600 dwt. The ship was built in China, at the Jiangsu Yangzijiang Shpbuilding shipyard. It sails under the flag of the Bahamas. The Great Lakes of America are the main market for Jamno, where POLSTEAM has specialized in servicing for years. Therefore, Jamno, like other ships in the series, is a so-called lakermax, meaning ocean-going vessels with the largest possible dimensions to navigate the lock and canal system of the Great Lakes.
