We are proud to announce that AET has unveiled its two new long-range (LR2) petroleum tankers from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) at HHI’s Gunsan Shipyard, Korea, on Thursday, 8 June 2017. The Singapore flagged 114,000dwt Eagle Lyon and French-flagged Eagle Le Havre, are owned by AET and have been taken on long-term charter by French oil major TOTAL.
The sister vessels were ceremonialised at a naming ceremony in Gunsan, which was graced by Mr Yee Yang Chien, AET Chairman and President/Group CEO of MISC Berhad, and Capt. Rajalingam Subramaniam, President & CEO of AET, along with senior representatives from TOTAL’s Trading and Shipping Division. The vessel was blessed by Godmother to the vessel, Mrs Helle Kristoffersen, Senior Vice-President, Strategy and Corporate Affairs Gas Renewables and Power Division, TOTAL.
Our two latest additions to AET’s high quality fleet of petroleum and chemical tankers will not only expand our global fleet portfolio, but also reduce our environmental footprint, as they have been designed to optimise overall operational efficiency and minimise environmental impact, which effectively qualifies them for the Green Passport notation. The new LR2s also demonstrate the company moving towards a more sustainable Product Business Model.
