Hunter Tankers, a part of Hunter Group ASA, has selected Tankers International Ltd as commercial manager for its fleet of very large crude carriers (VLCCs).

The company said that Tankers International would establish “the world’s first scrubber-fitted VLCC pool.”

In addition to the Hunter vessels the pool will consist of vessels from Hartree Maritime Partners, International Seaways, Oak Maritime (HK) and Ridgebury Tankers.

Hunter said that the pool would consist exclusively of modern scrubber-fitted VLCCs operated and maintained to the highest standards and will, combined with TI’s existing VLCC pools, represent the largest VLCC fleet in the world with more than 70 VLCCs on a fully delivered basis.

“The creation of the Scrubber Pool will maximize the company’s earnings potential through access to a large scale operation with a strong independent management team, while simultaneously retaining 100% of expected scrubber fuel savings.”
