Uni-Tankers said in a statement that it would be adding the 6,043 dwt modern ECO vessel
Sedat Basak to its owned fleet.
The company also signed a long-term deal for two newbuild sister vessels to Sedat Basak with stainless steel tanks which will be delivered in 2024 and 2025.
All three vessels are of modern ECO design and, according to the tanker owner, are approximately 30% more fuel efficient than conventional vessels of the same size.
Furthermore, Uni-Tankers signed a contract with a Japanese partner for a long-term deal for two 12,500 dwt stainless-steel newbuilds with delivery in 2025 and 2026. All four newbuilds will comply with IMO Tier 3 NOx and Sox emission requirements.
Earlier this year, Uni-Tankers announced the addition of four new time charter ships and the purchase of the Marex Noa, now named Jutlandia Swan.
