LSC Shipmanagement takes delivery of new tanker

South Korea-based JSC Latvian Shipping Company (LSC) subsidiary LSC Shipmanagement (LSCSM) has taken delivery of a new 157,000t tanker.

South Korea-based JSC Latvian Shipping Company (LSC) subsidiary LSC Shipmanagement (LSCSM) has taken delivery of a new 157,000t tanker.

The new 277m-long Elandra Eagle carrier was built by South Korean company Sungdong Shipbuilding, and is planned to be used for the transportation of oil.

JSC Latvian Shipping Company management board chairman Robert Kirkups said: “LSCSM adds the next ship to the fleet under its technical management to raise its maximum petroleum transportation capacity.

“We are delighted about the trust shown towards the professionalism and skills of our crews and ship management team.

"The new 277m-long Elandra Eagle carrier was built by South Korean company Sungdong Shipbuilding, and is planned to be used for the transportation of oil."

“The addition to the fleet is an important event, fulfilling the strategy of increasing vessels under technical management and thereby allowing the company to increase its number of workplaces both ashore and onboard.”

The company has also announced planning to add another new tanker to its fleet by June, which will be known as Elandra Falcon.

LSCSM previously took delivery of Elandra Oak, a 49,999t new vessel intended to use for the shipment of oil and chemical substances in May last year. The vessel has a total length of 183m and was built by South Korea-based SPP Shipbuilding.

LSC is mainly engaged in the transportation of oil products, chemicals and crude oil using its fleet of compact sized, medium range tankers.
