Almi Tankers S.A. is to enter the Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) market with 2 newbuildings from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd (DSME). The 2 VLCCs, each with a total deadweight tonnage of 320,000 MT, are to join the Almi Tankers S.A. fleet in November and July 2013 respectively.
Along with the existing 2 Aframax LR2 vessels and the 10 Suezmax DSME newbuildings confirmed in 2009, the 2 VLCCs will further demonstrate the modern nature of our fleet, and will bring the average age of our vessels to just 1.07 years in 2013. This will make the Almi Tankers S.A. fleet one of the youngest in the industry.
The vessels were designed to satisfy all relevant regulations, both current and foreseeable, and with constant consideration for the needs of our clients and our environmental obligations as a company.
