Hamburg-based shipping company United Product Tankers (UPT) informed that its UPT Handy Pool Fleet has been expanded with two tankers.
Namely, Sea World Management from Monaco has added two Handysize vessels to the UPT-managed fleet.
The MR1 ships in question are the 36,000 dwt Aston I and the 40,050 dwt Duke I.
The Monaco-flagged Aston I was built at South Korean Daedong shipyard in 2001 and the Panama-flagged Duke I at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in 2002.
As explained, Aston I is joining the UPT Pool within August, while Duke I will start trading in the company’s fleet after the completion of its present employment.
The fleet entrusted to UPT comprises double hull product tankers between 33,000 and 75,000 dwt.
