South Korea-based Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries has delivered the newbuild vessel M/T ‘Amore Mio’ to oceangoing vessel operator Capital Ship Management.

The 300,000 deadweight tonnage (dwt) vessel, constructed by Hyundai, is an eco-type crude oil and scrubber installed very large crude carrier (VLCC) tanker.

It is said to be the first of two ammonia and liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel-ready sister ships to be delivered this year.

Assigned ABS ENVIRO notation as well as ABS ammonia fuel ready and LNG fuel ready notations, the vessels are Tier III compliant for lower Nox emissions.

The vessel is also fitted with IHM notation for safe recycling.

In June, Capital Ship Management joined forces with maritime classification society Lloyd’s Register to test biofuel-blended marine fuel on its Apollonas crude tanker.
