Aegean Shipping Management is ordering two tankers from Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry Yangzhou shipyard.

With the addition of the two 114,000 dwt LR2 ice class tankers, Aegean will have built 14 ships in Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry's yards consisting of eight tankers and six bulk carriers.

The two LR2 type tankers were ordered for the first time by Aegean Shipping Management. They will be compatible with the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) – Phase III, having the latest version of MAN B&W electric motors that ensures optimal fuel consumption.

The installation of energy saving devices Pre-shrouded Vanes (PSV) and Hub Vortex Absorber Fins (HVAF) will enhance the power output of the vessel.

Aegean Shipping Management has a fleet of 15 modern tankers and bulk carriers, while after the two LR2s under construction, it will reach 17.
