Capital Ship Management welcomes second LNG-ready VLCC in its fleet

Greece’s Capital Ship Management has taken delivery of another ammonia and LNG-ready very large crude carrier from South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.

The Evangelos Marinakis-led firm said in a statement on Wednesday that the 300,000-dwt, scrubber fitted VLCC tanker, Alterego, is the second and final ammonia and LNG-ready VLCC to be delivered from Hyundai Samho in 2022.

This vessel follows the deliver of VLCC tanker, Amore Mio, in August.

The vessels are Tier III compliant for reduced NOx emissions, assigned ABS Enviro notation as well as ABS ammonia fuel ready and LNG fuel ready notations, Capital Ship Management said.

They are equipped with IHM notation for safe recycling, thus becoming two of the most “environmentally friendly, technologically advanced and efficient vessels” in the global VLCC fleet, Capital Ship Management claims.

The company currently operates a fleet of 39 tankers, including 12 VLCCs, 15 Aframaxes, 11 MR/Handy product tankers, and one small tanker with a total dwt of about 5.95 million tons.
