Oman Shipping Company said it has taken delivery of the 162,000 cubic metres capacity Adam LNG tanker.
The vessel was built by Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan, South Korea. It will operate worldwide with 25 crew including four Omani cadets.
“To slash harmful emissions we have deployed the latest Dual Fuel Diesel Electric (DFDE) technology,” OSC Acting Chief Executive Officer, Tarik Al Junaidi said.
OSC chief operating officer David Stockley said the Adam LNG will be managed by Oman Ship Management Company (OSMC), a unit of OSC.
“In the last year the number of vessels OSMC is managing has increased from 20 to 27 and these include VLCCs, VLOCs, LNG carriers, LPG carriers, product tankers and multi-purpose vessels,” added Stockley.
