Enesel Adds Two More Tankers to Newbuilding Tally

Greek shipowner Enesel has returned to South Korea with an appetite for two more tankers, however, this time it has picked a different shipbuilder.

Namely, Enesel has been linked to an order for two 114,000 dwt tankers at Daehan Shipbuilding set for delivery in 2020, according to Asiasis.

The Greek shipowner will be paying around 114 million for the two IMO Tier III compliant Aframaxes.

Daehan Shipbuilding has already built two Aframaxes for Enesel, which were delivered in 2017, the Maltese-flagged Kyrakatingo and Antonis.

Based on the data from VesselsValue, the company has four very large crude carriers on order at Hyundai Heavy Industries. Three 319,000 dwt VLCCs are set for delivery later this year and one in 2019.

The ships were contracted in en bloc order in February 2017 for a total of USD 332 million, around USD 83 million apiece.
