STX delivers Italian product tankers

Seoul: STX Shipbuilding has delivered two 35,000dwt IMO Type II chemical/product tankers - Alice (pictured) and Aurora - to Venice-based tanker operator Motia Compagnia di Navigazione. The two 180mtr LOA vessels have a total cargo capacity of 45,000cbm and are to enter service with the Handytankers pool: a limited partnership between Seaarland, d'Amico Tankers, A.P.Møller and Motia.

Antonio Zacchello, Motia md, says, "We are proud to welcome these two new vessels to our fleet. Our $700m newbuilding programme includes nine more product tankers from China, ranging from 38,000dwt up to 74,000dwt, two panamax bulk carriers from Japan and three more aframaxes from China," all due for delivery between 2007 and 2009. At the end of the newbuilding programme the Zacchello Group (of which Motia is a part) will be controlling about 62 ships including a fleet of 16 long-term time chartered ships, in addition to 50% of the 10 SynerGas gas carriers."  [12/01/07]
