The first Iran-built Aframax oil tanker ship is complete and the vessel will be ready soon for delivery to Venezuela.

The 113,000 dwt vessel has been built by Iran Marine Industrial Company, an affiliate of Sadra group of companies, and is  250 meters long, 44 meters wide, 21 meters high, with a service speed of 16 knots according to the FARS News Agency.

The Aframax oil tanker was worth 52 million Euros and the builder considers it to be the first of its kind built in the Middle East. 

Despite the western embargos, Iran's maritime and shipbuilding industries have made huge progress in recent years says the agency.
