Bermuda-based shipping company Teekay Corporation added another Suezmax tanker, the Seoul Spirit, to its fleet on September 13, 2016.
The company said it took over the technical management of the vessel at the Gibraltar Anchorage, adding that the Seoul Spirit will join the company’s “Centaurus” team.
Featuring a length of 274 meters and a width of 48 meters, the tanker was built in 2005 by South Korea’s shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME).
The 160,000 dwt Suezmax was bought in August 2015 from US-based Principal Maritime as part of a batch of twelve tankers purchased by Teekay for a price of USD 662 million.
Teekay Tankers currently owns a fleet of 47 vessels, including product tankers, Aframaxes, Suezmaxes and VLCC tankers, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
