SHI Delivers Maersk Capri
Danish-based Maersk Tankers has welcomed into its fleet Maersk Capri, a newbuilding Medium Range (MR) product/chemical tanker.
The 50,000 dwt ship, flagged in Singapore, was named on April 19 at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Ningbo, China.
” Maersk Capri is part of our fleet renewal to sustain a competitive fleet and strong market position in the MR segment,” the company said announcing the delivery.
The ship was ordered from SHI in 2015 as part of a USD 300 million contract for nine ships and it is the second ship from the series to be delivered from the yard so far this year. Maersk Capri follows in the footsteps of Singapore-flagged Maersk Cancun, which was delivered in January.
Five more tankers are set to be delivered to Maersk by the end of the year, according to the data from VesselsValue, with two more scheduled for completion in 2019.
Aside from the MR sector fleet buildup, Maersk Tankers is also pursuing fleet renewal in its Long Range (LR) sector. Namely, earlier this week the company revealed its intention to order six LR2 ships from Dalian Shipyard.
The six vessels are scheduled for delivery over a period of two years with the first vessels entering the fleet in 2020.
