New Tankers to Join KOTC Fleet

Thursday, November 16, 2006
According to reports, eight new oil tankers will join Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC)'s fleet during 2007, said KOTC Chairman Abdullah Al-Roumi on Wednesday. The company said the new tankers will be delivered in stages between January and December 2007, to secure ample time for the company's experts to inspect and test the tankers well and make sure they match the agreed upon features. The offices supervising the building of the fleet, in South Korea and Singapore, are staffed with Kuwaitis who have received the highest training in England, said the Chairman. This plan is in line with the fleet renewal plan as the older tankers are being scraped. The new fleet will all be dual-hull oil tankers, as single-hull oil tankers will be phased-out over the next two years. Source: Kuna
