South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries handed over the 320,500-dwt, Maran Danae according to a social media post by Angelicoussis.

In January, Maran Tankers took delivery of its first LNG-powered VLCC, Antonis I. Angelicoussis, and the second vessel, Maria A. Angelicoussis, in February.

Dual-fuel auxiliary boilers

Angelicoussis said the vessels are “leading the way in energy efficiency.”

They are equipped with the latest-generation dual-fuel MAN ES 7G80 ME-GI Tier III main engine, modern diesel generators, dual-fuel auxiliary boilers, a shaft generator, hydrodynamic hull and propeller design, advanced anti-fouling technology, and energy saving devices, it said.

Total four LNG dual-fuel VLCCs

According to its website, Maran Tankers operates 53 vessels and has one more Greek-flagged VLCCs on order at Samsung Heavy.

The firm ordered in total four LNG dual-fuel VLCCs at the Korean shipbuilder back in February 2021.

Maran Tankers expects to take delivery of Maran Dinoe in June this year.
