Signed MOA for Almi Spirit & Almi Star

Almi Tankers was founded in 2009 and has its Head Office in Egaleo, Athens. The company initially took over the management of two LR2 vessels, the Almi Spirit in 2009 and the Almi Star in 2010. The Almi Spirit is a 105,000 dwt HHI tanker, built in 2007. She is a fully coated Aframax tanker, classed under DNV and has held a Safety Management Certificate issued by Lloyd’s Register since 2009. The Almi Star is a 115,000 dwt, DSME-built fully coated Aframax tanker and is classed under Lloyds Register. Both vessels fly the Liberian flag and were previously operated by Teekay. Soon after the company’s creation, Almi Tankers deployed its plans for fleet expansion. Between 2011 and early 2014, it took delivery of the Almi Horizon, the Almi Galaxy, the Almi Globe, the Almi Sky, the Almi Sun, the Almi Explorer, the Almi Odyssey, the Almi Navigator and the Almi Voyager, nine 158,000 dwt Suezmax tankers, as well as the Almi Hydra (previously Hydra Voyager) and Almi Hercules (previously Hercules Voyager), two 320,000 dwt VLCCs, all DSME newbuildings designed with the latest regulations and industry requirements in mind. In 2018 Almi Tankers took delivery of two 315,000 dwt VLCCs, the Almi Titan and the Almi Atlas. These were built at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries. Both vessels were designed in accordance with the latest regulations and industry requirements in order to satisfy customer needs and special emphasis was placed on an environmentally friendly design. The vessels are among the most eco-friendly and energy efficient ships worldwide exceeding the latest environmental protection standards. A tanker management company needs to be totally trusted to deliver a reliable service that is safe, environmentally responsible and punctual. This is why Almi Tankers has adopted the value of operational integrity as its guiding principle. Operational integrity means reliability, responsibility and trustworthiness. It is an ethos that is expected of all members of the team at all levels. Since June 2010, Almi Tankers has been certified for compliance with ISO 45001 (prev. OHSAS 18001), ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 standards, which mark out companies dedicated to excellence in relation to health and safety, the environment and quality. In 2011, Almi Tankers also gained recognition according to the Investors in People (IIP) Standard, which demonstrates commitment to growth and to improving business performance through the development and recognition of people at all levels. This recognition was renewed first in 2014, then in June 2017 (Silver Level) and again in October 2020 (Gold Level) following re-assessments by IIP International. In December 2019, Almi Tankers was one of the first shipping companies to obtain an ISO 27001 certification and in May 2020, the company obtained yet another certification, the ISO 50001, both ISOs were certified by Lloyd’s Register.
