The LNG dual-fuel-powered very large crude carrier (VLCC) Antonis I. Angelicoussis has been certified by the Green Award Foundation. The Greek-flagged ship is the first LNG dual fuel VLCC to join the Green Award programme.
The certification includes the Green Award greenhouse gas labels CO2 (level 1) and CH4. The 330m by 60me tanker, with a DWT of 320,916 tons, sets a course in its sector towards energy transition.
Antonis I. Angelicoussis is managed by Maran Tankers Management, the oil shipping arm of Greece’s Angelicoussis Group, which has a fleet of over 140 ships.
The Angelicoussis Group has been participating in the Green Award programme for over27 years.
In recent years three Maran Tankers managed oil tankers were certified by Green Award, as well as four LNG tankers operated by sister company Maran Gas Maritime.
Earlier this year Antonis I. Angelicoussis was delivered to Maran Tankers Management, followed by sisterships Maria A. Angelicoussis, Maran Danae and Maran Dione in recent months.
All four LNG dual-fuel ships, built by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea, are part of Maran Tanker’s fleet expansion programme, which also includes eight new build LNG dual fuel Suezmax tankers on order. It is worth noting that these four VLCCs are the lowest emission most environmentally friendly in the world today.
