AET Tankers Christens LR2 Duo

Petroleum and chemical tanker owner AET Tankers has held a double naming ceremony of two long-range (LR2) petroleum tankers built by South Korean Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

Christened at HHI’s yard in Gunsan, Korea, Eagle Lyon and Eagle Le Havre will both qualify for the Green Passport notation, having been designed to optimise overall operational efficiency and minimise environmental impact.

AET Tankers said that the 114,000 dwt vessels have been fitted with the most modern energy efficient engines, auxiliary equipment having advance power management systems, along with the latest hull, tank and ballast epoxy coatings.

“Both vessels have been carefully designed to provide optimal operational and environmental efficiency,” Yee Yang Chien, Chairman, AET and President/Group CEO, MISC Berhad, said.

The Singapore-flagged Eagle Lyon and the French-flagged Eagle Le Havre have been taken on long-term charter by French oil major Total.

The LR2s unveiled in Gunsan are the latest addition to AET’s fleet, which now includes 12 VLCCs, six Suezmaxes, one Panamax, 46 Aframaxes, four DP tankers, 13 CPPs, five LR2 tankers, 13 chemical ships and an LPG tanker.

Its current orderbook includes a further two Suezmaxes and four more Aframaxes.
