The contract includes two firm 158,000-dwt tankers and options for two more sister vessels. The two firm vessels are being built at a price of $171 million , and the units are slated for delivery by March 2026.
“The newbuild programme is part of Hayfin’s investment focus in carbon-efficient assets across critical downstream commodity supply chains,” said Andreas Povlsen, Head of Maritime at Hayfin Capital Management.
Hayfin has an alternative investment platform with $32 billion worth of assets under management.
Hayfin said that the investment aligns with successful co-investments in emissions abatement technology made together with charterers, like the recently announced Greenheart partnership with Njord and Marsoft.
As part of the partnership, Njord will design a bespoke package of fuel-saving technologies on, initially, four Greenheart-owned vessels, to achieve fuel and emission cuts of between seven and 16% vessel.
“These investments have been made on assets with longer term-charters and are designed to provide the end user community with a more carbon-efficient asset base, supporting the evolution towards a sustainable global infrastructure complex,” the company said in a statement.
