HHI gains an order for up to four Suezmax tankers

Europe’s shipping investor Hayfin has placed an order for up to four ‘enhanced methanol ready’ Suezmax tankers at South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

The contract includes two firm 158,000-dwt tankers and options for two more sister vessels with the delivery of the firm units scheduled for the first half of 2026.

“The newbuild program is part of Hayfin’s investment focus in carbon-efficient assets across critical downstream commodity supply chains,” said Andreas Povlsen, Head of Maritime at Hayfin Capital Management.

The order was already revealed by the South Korean shipbuilder HD Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (HD KSOE) earlier this week.

The two new vessels will be built under a KRW 231.8 billion ($171 million) contract, and the units are slated for delivery by March 2026.
