Maran Tankers takes delivery of second LNG-powered VLCC

Maran Tankers Management, the oil tanker unit of Greece’s Angelicoussis Shipping Group, has taken delivery of its second LNG dual-fuel very large crude carrier (VLCC).

South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries handed over the 320,500-dwt, Maria A. Angelicoussis, named after the wife of the group’s founder, Antonis I. Angelicoussis, on February 15, according to a social media post by Maran Tankers.

Last month, Maran Tankers took delivery of its first LNG-powered VLCC, Antonis I. Angelicoussis.

Maran Tankers said the vessels were designed to be both “highly efficient and environmentally friendly”.
