Preem And Sirius Shipping Expand Collaboration With New Sustainable Tankers


Preem and Sirius Shipping are expanding their collaboration with the addition of two new state-of-the-art tankers designed for the sustainable transportation of renewable fuels and feedstock. These vessels, which are part of the Sirius Evolution 15K series, represent a significant step towards reducing the environmental impact of maritime transport and support Preem’s goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2035.

Sustainable Maritime Transportation

The two new-build sister vessels will play a crucial role in Preem’s next-generation transport system. With advanced designs and technologies, these tankers will ensure safe and sustainable maritime transportation. Their features include a 2-stroke main engine convertible to methanol operation, battery backup, and shore power connection, all of which contribute to a significantly lower environmental footprint compared to previous vessel generations.

Operational Efficiency and Environmental Impact

Preem’s “just in time” approach to sea transportation means the vessels will adjust their speed to minimize anchoring time at refineries and ports. This practice reduces fuel consumption, enhances safety, and minimizes environmental impact. The Sirius Evolution 15K tankers, with an Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) of 5.50, surpass the regulatory requirement by approximately 39%, highlighting their exceptional efficiency and low environmental impact.

Commitment to Sustainability and Safety

The long-term charter agreement with Sirius Shipping underscores Preem’s commitment to sustainability and safety in shipping. These vessels will primarily distribute finished products and supply refineries with renewable feedstock. By investing in modern and efficient tankers, Preem supports its customers in achieving their sustainability goals and strengthens its leadership in sustainable maritime transport.
