The Daehan yard in Korea has recently delivered an 115,000 dwt crude oil carrier ordered by Greek operator Sun Enterprises.

The new vessel is 249.9m long and 44m wide. It is an eco-friendly, high-efficiency vessel that satisfies Phase 3 of the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI). It is designed in accordance with the environmental regulations of the IM). It has been named Strymon (after a river flowing in the northeast of Greece).

Sun Enterprises has maintained a trusting relationship since it placed an order for the first Aframax class crude oil carrier to Korea Shipbuilding in 2019. In particular, at the beginning of last year, when there were few orders for crude oil carriers around the world, the company placed additional orders with confidence in the quality of Korean shipbuilding.

CEO Sun Enterprises, Stavros Livanos, said: “I would like to thank all the executives and employees of Daehan Shipbuilding for building a ship of excellent quality.”

Chairman Kim Kwang-ho, who completed the acquisition of Daehan Shipbuilding on 1 September following the acquisition of STX (now K-Chosun) in 2021, said: “The order for an Aframax tanker from Korea Shipbuilding was placed despite the decrease in oil cargo volume last year. In order to repay with excellent quality and on-time delivery, all of our executives and staff worked together to successfully complete the ship construction even in difficult situations such as rising steel prices and global supply chain instability due to COVID-19.”

In the future, Daehan Shipbuilding aims to grow reliability by achieving growth into a company that is financially sound as well as competitive in winning orders.
