Greek shipowner Enesel, part of family-owned Lemos Group, has declared its options for a crude oil tanker pair at South Korean Daehan Shipbuilding.
The 158,000 dwt vessels are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2021, according to Clarksons Platou Shipbroking.
The transaction price has not been disclosed.
The most recent order is part of a contract that included two firm and two optional 158,000 dwt tankers signed between Enesel and Daehan in late 2018. The tanker pair ordered in December last year is slated for delivery in 2020.
For the first two Suezmaxes, Enesel paid USD 61.5 million per ship, data provided by VesselsValue’s shows.
With a total cubic capacity of 174,000 cbm, each of the four identical newbuilds will feature a length of 274 meters and a width of 48 meters. They will have an engine power of 15,670 kW and a service speed of 14.8 knots, according to information found on Enesel’s website.
Apart from the four Suezmaxes, Enesel has two Aframax oil/product tankers on order at Daehan Shipbuilding as well as one very large crude carrier (VLCC) at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).
