It is reported that these 12 new ships will all be built at Jinhae Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of STX Offshore & Shipbuilding, and are scheduled to be delivered to ship owners from the fourth quarter of 2022 to the end of 2023.

These 12 new ships are all green and environmentally friendly ships, meeting the requirements of the third phase of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) requirement. In particular, the 115,000-ton Aframax crude oil carrier will be equipped with the latest energy-saving device (ESD), which can effectively improve the fuel efficiency of the ship, reduce operating costs, and significantly reduce atmospheric and marine pollutant emissions.

A person from STX Offshore & Shipbuilding said: “The order is the result of the delivery performance of the company’s high-quality medium-sized refined oil/chemical tanker and the shipowner’s approval. At present, we are still receiving orders from shipowners for newbuild vessels. And look forward to receiving additional orders in the second half of the year.”
