Danish tanker owner and operator Maersk Tankers held a naming ceremony for Maersk Curacao, its eighth MR unit being delivered by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).

"SHA122 becomes Maersk Curacao: Our latest newbuilding received its name during a traditional naming ceremony at Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Ningo, China," said a Twitter message from Maersk Tankers.

"Maersk Curacao is number 18 out of 19 MR newbuildings and will be delivered to our fleet in the near future," it added.

Like the sister ship Maersk Crete, which was officially named on July 24, Maersk Curacao flies the Singaporean flag and has a capacity of 52,914 cbm. This is the third Samsung-built MR2 to be delivered to Maersk Tankers this year.

The final vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2020.
