Eagle Pilar delivered to AET

Eagle Pilar has been successfully delivered to AET by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) in South Korea.

The vessel was safely constructed at the SHI yard and timely delivered amid the COVID-19 outbreak with all extra health and safety precautions taken by AET and the Eaglestar site teams working closely together with the SHI team to safeguard the ongoing construction and delivery.

DNV-GL and Eaglestar collaboration

This 153,180 DWT DP2 vessel has been built in collaboration with DNV-GL and Eaglestar and is operating to the highest operational and environmental standards, including full compliance with IMO NOx Tier 3 and SOx emission requirements.

Eagle Pilar, by design, is approximately 25 to 30 percent more fuel efficient than the DPSTs built in the early part of the last decade, thereby demonstrating our ambition to align with IMO’s 2030 carbon intensity aspirations.

In addition, the vessel is installed with a ballast water treatment system, equipped with electrical driven cargo pumps for enhanced fuel efficiency, high-power thrusters and the latest position reference system fully capable of operating in harsh weather conditions.
