Denmark-based maritime company Monjasa has decided to expand its fleet with a D-Class product tanker from SKS Holding.

As explained, the 119,000 dwt ship will become the largest ever member of Monjasa’s fleet.

The 2010-built tanker will form part of Monjasa’s operations covering the West African continent, comprising 15 tankers delivering a total of 1.5 million tons of marine fuel yearly.

“It’s a pioneering move to apply an SKS D-Class tanker as a floating storage and this first-class vessel becomes the largest ever member of Monjasa’s fleet,” Anders Østergaard, CEO of Monjasa Group, commented.

The vessel comes with six double valve segregations and is equipped with Framo deep-well cargo pumps for each individual tank, Monjasa said.

Monjasa will soon take delivery of the vessel in Europe. The tanker, which joins on time charter terms, will be in full operation off West Africa during December 2017.

Flying the flag of Norwegian International Ship Register, the vessel features a length of 250 meters and a width of 45 meters.
