Russia’s SCF Group has exercised an option for two 114,000 dwt dual fuel tankers at South Korean shipbulder Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, according to Asiasis.

The Aframax duo features an ice-class IA and is slated for delivery in 2019, based on the report.

SCF was not available for comment on the order when approached by World Maritime News.

In March this year, Sovcomflot ordered four 114,000 dwt Ice-Class IA Aframax tankers at the South Korean yard under a USD 240 million deal.

Described as the world’s first LNG-fueled Aframax tankers, the four ships are scheduled to be delivered from the third quarter of 2018 onwards.

Once delivered, the ships will be chartered to the oil and gas giant Shell.
