According to MANA, The new vessel is a 300,000 dwt VLCC and takes the number of ships in Bahri’s fleet to 84.
Bahri took delivery of the VLCC, its thirty-seventh, built to the latest environmental and fuel-efficient technical specifications, in a ceremony held at HHI’s Mokpo shipyard in South Jeolla Province, South Korea.
Ibrahim Al-Omar, Bahri ceo, said the event marked the company’s journey to becoming the world’s largest owner and operator of VLCCs.
“This increase in fleet will provide us with added operational flexibility, facilitate business expansion and help us capitalise on the continued demand for crude oil,” he added.
Bahri and HHI have shared a close relationship for over a decade, with 25 vessels ordered and delivered to date and nine more VLCCs currently on order.
