The HVSC-ready notation is for vessels equipped with high voltage shore connection systems to be installed in the future, and the wind-assist ready notation refers to ships fitted with wind-assist equipment to be installed on board.

M/T ‘Agisilaos’ has future-proof design compliant with EEDI Phase 3 and is annotated with ABS SUSTAIN-1 (2020) that demonstrates adherence to the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

“Being Tier III compliant for reduced NOx emissions, assigned ABS ENVIRO notation, as well as ABS Wind-Assisted Ready, HVSC-Ready and LNG Fuel Ready notations, and equipped with IHM notation for safe recycling, M/T ‘Agisilaos’ becomes one of the most environmentally friendly, technologically advanced and efficient vessels in the global MR fleet,” Capital Ship Management noted.

To remind, on 27 January, the company took delivery of the vessel named M/T Alkiviadis from Hyundai Vietnam Shipyard.

It is the first of six LNG fuel-ready sister ships with eco-friendly designs delivered to Capital in 2023.
