Sovcomflot Takes Delivery of VLCC Svet

Sovcomflot Group (SCF) has taken delivery of the first of two 320,000-dwt Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs), the Svet from Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co. Ltd. (BSHIC).

The Svet, classed by Det Norske Veritas, is 332 m long, 60 m wide, has a depth of 30.05 m, draught of 22.6 m and operational speed of 16 knots.

Like its sistership, SCF Shanghai, the Svet is intended for crude oil shipping operations under long-term time charter agreements with PetroChina International (a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation).

The newbuilds will allow SCF to break into a new large tonnage segment employing VLCC tankers. Vessels of this class will fit seamlessly into the Russian shipping company’s fleet and will help improve the Group’s competitive advantage on the global tanker market.
