LSC Shipmanagement will provide the technical management for the Suezmax vessel owned by Singapore’s Elandra.

“The addition to the fleet is an important event, fulfilling the strategy of increasing vessels under technical management,” Kirkups further said.

Built by South Korean shipbuilder Sungdong, Elandra Eagle will fly the Marshall Islands flag.

With a gross tonnage of 81,300 tons, the tanker features a length of 277 meters and a width of 48 meters.

According to the company, Elandra Eagle is the biggest tanker in LSC’s fleet.

In June this year, LSC Shipmanagement plans to take delivery of another Elandra tanker, Elandra Falcon.
