One More MR Unit Joins Maersk Tankers

Danish tanker owner and operator Maersk Tankers added Maersk Cayman, a new MR product tanker, to its fleet on October 26.

Featuring a length of 183 meters and a width of 32.2 meters, the unit was constructed and delivered by Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Ningbo, China.

Maersk Cayman is the fourth vessel in a series of nine MR product tankers being built at SHI as part of Maersk Tankers’ fleet renewal programme.

The 50,000 dwt vessels were ordered by the company back in 2015 under a contract worth USD 300 million.

Maersk Cayman’s sister vessels, Maersk Cancun, Maersk Capri and Maersk Callao, were delivered in January, April and July this year.

VesselsValue’s data shows that one more tanker from the batch is expected to join its owner in 2018, while the remaining four would be delivered in 2019.
