Hunter Tankers, a part of Hunter Group ASA, took delivery of the newbuilding very large crude carrier (VLCC) Hunter Laga on November 1.

The vessel is the third of seven identical ECO design VLCC newbuildings being built at South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

According to the sale-and-leaseback transaction revealed in early September 2019, Hunter Laga was subsequently delivered to and immediately bareboat chartered back from Ship Finance International Limited.

The ship will join Hunter Atla and Hunter Saga in the Tankers International Scrubber Pool, and will start trading in the spot market.

The remaining four units are scheduled for delivery between March and July 2020.

All seven of the company’s VLCCs “are built to the highest standards and will be fitted with scrubbers,” Hunter Tankers said.
