Maran Tankers orders LNG-powered quartet in China

China’s New Times has won a new order for LNG-powered Suezmax tankers from Maran Tankers Management, the oil tanker unit of Greece’s Angelicoussis Shipping Group.

Earlier this year, Maran Tankers ordered four LNG dual-fuel Suezmax tankers with an option for four additional vessels.

The Greek firm has now exercised this option, according to the website of Maran Tankers.

Also, the 155,500-dwt vessels will be delivered during 2027.

Maran Tankers expects to take delivery of the first four ships during June-November 2026 and the other four ships during January-May 2027.

The first four vessels were reported each to be worth about $87 million.

This year, Maran Tankers took delivery of its first four LNG dual-fuel very large crude carriers from South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.

In January, Maran Tankers took delivery of the LNG-powered VLCC, Antonis I. Angelicoussis, the second vessel, Maria A. Angelicoussis, in February, and the third vessel, Maran Danae, joined the fleet in April.

The latest vessel, Maran Dione, joined the company’s fleet last month.

Maran Tankers currently operates 55 vessels and it has these eight Suezmax tankers on order at NTS, its website shows.
