Bermuda-based crude oil tanker company DHT Holdings took delivery of a very large crude carrier (VLCC) newbuilding on November 23 from South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries.
The new 299,900 dwt VLCC vessel, named DHT Jaguar, has already entered the spot market.
DHT Jaguar is the first of a series of six VLCC newbuildings to be delivered to the company over the coming year, all of which will be built by Hyundai Heavy Industries.
The second VLCC is scheduled for delivery in January 2016.
According to DHT Holdings, the newbuildings are all fully funded.
With this delivery, DHT Holdings now operates a fleet of nineteen vessels, fifteen of which are VLCCs, two are Suezmax and another two Aframax vessels.
