The company is currently undertaking a 19-vessel fleet renewal program in the MR2 segment. The tankers are built by SHI and Sungdong Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.

The 52,914 cbm Maersk Crete features a length of 183 meters and is Singapore-flagged. It is the third Samsung-built MR2 to be delivered to Maersk Tankers this year.
