Four new vessels for AET as fleet rejuvenation continues
Singapore-based tanker owner AET has named and welcomed four newbuild tankers into its fleet in separate ceremonies at South Korean shipyards.
AET named two 113,400DWT Aframax tankers Eagle Barcelona and Eagle Brisbane at Samsung Heavy Industries at Geoje.
Two days later two 157,512DWT Suezmax twins, Eagle San Francisco and Eagle San Jose, were named at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard at Ulsan.
All four LNG dual-fuel vessels will join the AET fleet as part of a rejuvenation program and take up charter agreements with oil companies.
The vessels are fully compliant with incoming regulations, including ballast water management, sulphur emission control and the requirement for carbon monitoring, reporting and verification. Each will qualify for the Green Passport notation.
AET will take delivery of another two Aframax tankers this year and two DPII shuttle tankers in 2019.
