Two LNG-ready tankers join Capital Ship Management’s fleet

Greece’s Capital Ship Management has taken delivery of two LNG-ready chemical/product MR tankers from Hyundai Vietnam.

The Evangelos Marinakis-led firm said in a statement on April 21 that the 50,000-dwt, Atrotos and Anikitos, are part of the batch of six LNG-ready chemical/product MR tankers.

Prior to these ships, Capital Ship Management, took delivery of the 50,000-dwt, Avax, the third vessel in this series.

The vessels come with the HVSC-ready notation for ships equipped with high voltage shore connection systems to be installed in the future, and the wind-assist ready notation which refers to vessels equipped with wind-assist equipment to be installed on board, Capital Ship Management said.

Also, the vessels have “future proof design compliant” with EEDI Phase 3.

Besides these ships, South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries handed over last year two ammonia and LNG-ready very large crude carriers to the firm.

These vessels are the 300,000-dwt Alterego and Amore Mio.
