These vessels have a capacity of 82,000 dwt and length of 229 meters, consume less fuel and integrate an eco-friendly sign. The Company started its operation through chartering out 5 vessels to Arasco that will be replaced by the new vessels.

Four vessels remain under construction and are expected to be delivered in the first half of 2014.
