Hanwha Ocean Delivers a LNG Dual-Fuel VLCC to AET

On October 30th, Hanwha Ocean delivered a LNG Dual-Fuel VLCC to AET, a Singapore-based petroleum logistics unit of Malaysian energy logistics group MISC Berhad, for a long-term charter to Shell.

The vessel named Eagle Ventura is the sister vessel to the Eagle Vellore, which was handed over on a long-term charter to Shell Tankers (Singapore) Private Limited in August this year, and is the first of three crude oil tankers to be delivered by AET to Shell, for which the two parties entered into a charter agreement in March 2021.

The third vessel in this series is under construction at the Korean shipyard and is scheduled for delivery later this year on a long-term charter to Shell Tankers (Singapore) Private Limited.

Classed by Lloyd’s Register, the three ships feature optimized hull forms and propellers, wake improvement ducts, and rudder bulbs to further improve their energy efficiency. The VLCCs comply with IMO’s 2025 EEDI Phase III and achieve a 99% reduction in sulphur oxides, 85% reduction in nitrogen oxides, and 95% particulate matter.
