Inaugurated in 2003, our tanker department specializes in the operation of a fleet of quality Aframax tankers in the crude oil transportation market. With a current fleet of 7 modern Aframax tankers averaging 6 years of age, we aim to be a first class operator, providing our esteemed customers ranging from Oil Majors to trading houses with reliable and quality sea transport services. Our fleet is regularly maintained to the high standards set out by OCIMF and is granted approvals from various Oil Majors.
In view of the current testing tanker market conditions, we strongly believe that safety, reliability and flexibility is the key to navigating through these tough times in the tanker business. With our nimble fleet, coupled with the support of our long-term COA partners, we are able to reduce our market risk exposure in the trough of the shipping cycle, and at the same time maintain our presence in the spot market. So that eventually when the tanker market recovers, KLPL Tanker will be well-poised to capitalize on the opportunities bound to arise.
KLPL Chemical Tanker business is brand new project for "K"Line Group. We have ordered 3 of 33,000DWT type chemical tankers with 18 full SUS cargo tanks. Our first chemical tanker was just delivered on Mar 2012 from Japanese shipyard, and 2 more vessels will be delivered in 1Q and 2Q of 2013. From the experience accumulated from our Aframax tanker business, we will maintain the high quality of the vessels, and we aim to be high-class operator of this chemical tanker world.
