Four new vessels for AET as fleet rejuvenation continues

We are proud to announce that we have named and welcomed four newbuild tankers into our fleet in two separate ceremonies at South Korean shipyards this week.

At Samsung Heavy Industries, Geoje, South Korea on Wednesday, 24 January, AET named two 113,400 dwt Aframax tankers “Eagle Barcelona” and “Eagle Brisbane”.

Two 157,512 dwt Suezmax twins, “Eagle San Francisco” and “Eagle San Jose”, were named two days later on Friday, 26 January, at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea.

All four vessels will join the AET fleet as part of an ongoing fleet rejuvenation programme and take up charter agreements with leading oil companies.

AET President & CEO, Captain Rajalingam Subramaniam said:
It is always a significant milestone in the journey of a shipping company to accept new vessels into the fleet. The four new ships to join AET will replace older tonnage and provide more flexibility for our customers. At AET, we have made a significant investment in a new building programme that allows us to continue offering a young, advanced and flexible fleet to our customers. The new ships benefit from the latest eco-friendly and energy efficient technology and world-class innovations that is not only positive for us, but also equally positive for our customers, environment and the communities in which we operate.”
