AET names four bunker-saving newbuild tankers

26 Jan 2018 12:30 GMT

Another two vessels are set to be the world's first LNG dual-fuelled Aframax tankers when launched later this year.



Singapore-headquartered vessel owner AET Tankers - a subsidiary of Malaysia's MISC Berhad - has named and welcomed four newbuild tankers into its fleet in two separate ceremonies at South Korean shipyards this week.

On Wednesday, January 24, AET named two 113,400-deadweight-tonne (dwt) Aframax tankers Eagle Barcelona and Eagle Brisbane at Samsung Heavy Industries in Geoje.

On Friday, January 26, two 157,512-dwt Suezmax twins, Eagle San Francisco and Eagle San Jose, were named at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in Ulsan.

The four vessels will join AET's fleet as part of an ongoing fleet rejuvenation programme and take up charter agreements with oil companies.

According to AET, all of the vessels will qualify for the Green Passport notation and benefit from an optimized hull design and the inclusion of energy-efficient engines and machinery.

The optimum propeller design and innovation as well as the use of high-specification hull coatings will help reduce fuel consumption further, AET explained.

LNG-fuelled vessels

AET is also due to take delivery of two further Aframax tankers later this year and two DPII shuttle tankers in 2019.

The ships due for delivery later this year will be two of the world's first LNG dual-fuelled Aframax tankers.

The two DPII shuttle tankers scheduled to join AET in 2019 will also be LNG duel-fuel. When in operation from 2019, they are set to be the world's first LNG dual-fuelled DPSTs and the most energy efficient.

Green Sustainability Agenda

The company has been working on a Green Sustainability Agenda to control the emission of particulate matters (PM), sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon (CO2). "AET is confident that these LNG dual-fuelled ships are the sustainable solution, both in the mid and long term," the company said.

AET points out that its pursuit of its Green Sustainability Agenda is also consistent with MISC Group's Vision and Mission, which calls for the Group "to consistently provide better energy related maritime solutions and services, care for the environment and operate responsibly."
