New E-class tankers with focus on Efficiency and Environmental care

In October 2021 next E-type (LNG) new building will be delivered. The new design of the E-type is completely revised and is an updated version of the existing design that has proven itself over the years as a benchmark in the coastal tanker market.

The problem of environmental pollution is becoming increasingly crucial and the situation with air and water pollution concerns almost everyone, but our progressive partners have found a solution to reduce harmful emissions. Our Dutch partners are working with shipowners, who are in process of building the next generation, climate coastal vessels. The E-class vessels are focused on efficiency, environmental care and customer’s needs and they are built to the latest design. The new vessels reduced fuel consumption with an increased cargo intake, less exhaust emissions and lower noise levels are a few examples of that. The new E-types will be fueled by LNG with a pressurized tank installed on deck. Modern reality requires bright decisions.

Chief Officer/Watch Officer and 2nd Engineer with LNG experience are most welcome.
