On March 9, Malaysian shipping group MISC Berhad announced that its subsidiary AET Tankers has taken delivery of the latest second-generation DP2 Suezmax shuttle tanker “Eagle Canoas” built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea. This is the second in a series of three DP2 shuttle tankers ordered by AET at Hyundai Heavy Industries in 2019, the first of which was just delivered for operation in January this year. All three vessels have signed long-term charter contracts with Brazil Shipping I Limited, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Shell, and will be deployed to operate in Brazilian waters after delivery.
Eagle Canoas is a 153,000DWT shuttle tanker built to Shell‘s DP2 shuttle tanker specifications in Brazil, equipped with electrically powered variable frequency drive (VFD) cargo pumps and high-powered thrusters for improved fuel efficiency. The ship is also equipped with energy-saving devices such as Hi Pre-Swirl Duct and Rudder Bulb to further improve propulsion efficiency and meet the requirements of the second stage of the Ship Energy Efficiency Index (EEDI) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Tier III and SOx emission requirements.
AET said the delivery of Eagle Canoas further strengthens the company’s commitment to decarbonization and sustainable development. With the delivery of the vessel, AET solidifies its position as the world’s leading owner and operator of the highly specialized DPST tanker market, with 13 DPSTs in the company’s fleet, of which 8 Ships operate in the Brazilian Basin.
As of now, AET has four DP2 shuttle tankers under construction, including one from Hyundai Heavy Industries and three from Samsung Heavy Industries, all of which are expected to be delivered within this year. After all new ships are delivered, AET will have 17 DPSTs, 13 of which are deployed in the Brazilian market.
