Today, Eagle Vallery, our second dual-fuel VLCC was successfully and safely delivered by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) to AET. Following the delivery of Eagle Valence, one of the world’s first dual-fuel VLCCs, Eagle Vallery is the sister vessel in this series of two built for long-term charter to TotalEnergies with Eaglestar as our appointed shipmanager.
On delivery, Capt. John Baptist, Global Director, VLCC/PCS said:
“AET is a pioneer in LNG dual-fuel vessels with a growing fleet of dual-fuel assets. These dual-fuel VLCCs are a continuation of our commitment to investing in sustainable shipping solutions that are both economically viable and environmentally compliant. We are proud of yet another key milestone as we continue to chart our pathway towards our target of greenhouse gases intensity reduction by 40% by 2030 (against 2008 baseline) as well as achieve our long-term commitment of net-zero emissions by 2050.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone from TotalEnergies, SHI, DNV, Eaglestar, colleagues from AET and all vendors and partners for believing in and acting on our shared ambition to decarbonise shipping. My sincere thanks to all parties involved in this successful construction and timely delivery of Eagle Vallery.”
Wishing our crew safe voyage and fair winds always.
