First LR3 Product Tanker delivered
12th Sep 2016
Arab Maritime Petroleum Transport Company (AMPTC) has just taken delivery of M/T Star Energy, the first of two LR3 Product Carriers built by the Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Samho (HSHI) under the supervision of SeaQuest.
It was a breakthrough by AMPTC the introduction on the market of these vessels (159,000 DWT with epoxy-coated tanks suitable to carry clean petroleum products) and SeaQuest had a crucial role in the project, attending negotiation of contractual specifications and makers list and carrying out the plan approval in conjunction with owner’s technical department.
The careful new building supervision of our personnel strongly contributed to achieving the on-time and flawless delivery of Star Energy, despite the coating of such extended cargo tanks was a yard’s premiere and definitely a challenging task for all parties involved.
Our site team remains in Samho yard following the construction of Star Energy’s sister vessel, whose delivery is scheduled later on in this Autumn.
