Hong Kong headquartered ship management group Wallem has recently welcomed two dual fuel vessels, ‘Angleviken’ and ‘Askviken’ into its management.
Wallem believes that the two LR2 tankers, delivered by Guangzhou Shipyard International, demonstrate its commitment to building expertise in managing and operating vessels of the future and being a partner to its clients in driving decarbonisation in the maritime industry. Wallem is preparing to take delivery of multiple new build DF PCTC vessels in the near future.
Ioannis Stefanou, MD Ship Management, Wallem Group said: “Since its foundation 120 years ago, Wallem has been at the forefront of maritime global services with a keen eye to adopt industry change. In the 21st century decarbonisation leads the sector’s agenda, and Wallem’s key focus is to develop and build our expertise both onboard and ashore in new technologies and alternative fuel systems. Despite technological advances, we still believe the Future is Human. These dual fuel vessels have brought exciting opportunities for our crew to expand their expertise. They provide a platform to train experienced crews of various ship types on dual fuel engine system requirements. Wallem is ready to manage any type of vessel equipped with dual fuel engines for our clients.”
