AET takes delivery of a second 'eco-design' VLCC that is fully compliant with the IMO Ballast Water Management Convention.

Named Eagle Varna, this 320,000dwt vessel is fitted with a range of innovative technology that significantly reduces its fuel consumption and associated emissions. In addition, the new vessel is fitted with the Techcross BWM system that disinfects ballast water using electrolysis technology.

Enviro innovations include a pre-swirl stator, rudder bulb and propeller boss cap fins. Taken together, these additions produce a tangible reduction in overall fuel use. Eagle Varna has been awarded the ENVIRO and the Green Passport notation by class society, ABS. The EEDI attained is significantly less than the IMO base line.

Speaking at the naming ceremony at the DSME shipyard in Korea, AET President and CEO, Hor Weng Yew said:
“Investing in eco-technology is a given for operators who seek to stay ahead of the curve and who have a passion for delivering optimum solutions to their customers. This new vessel reinforces AET’s position as a world leading tanker operator and also as a company that takes its environmental responsibilities extremely seriously.”

Two additional VLCCs will be delivered from the DSME yard later in the year. These vessels will be further enhanced with the latest super long-stroke green electronically controlled main engines that deliver more power using less fuel, together with a DSME duct.

AET Tanker Holdings, headquartered in Malaysia with regional offices in the UK, Singapore, India and the US, operates a group of wholly owned companies that manage and operate its fleet of tankers.
