Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has received additional orders for extra-large crude oil carriers from state-owned Oman Shipping Company (OSC).

The vessels will be built at DSME’s Okpo Shipyard and will be delivered to the shipowner by 4Q2020. The contract also includes one additional option, which is expected to generate additional orders in the future. 

In 2006, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering began a partnership with Oman, establishing a repair shipyard in Oman and signing a 10-year consignment management contract. Consignment management was completed in 2016, and over 450 vessels were successfully repaired during the commissioning period, helping to strengthen Oman industrial competitiveness. Based on this, the company won a second order from OSC in 2008 for five large-size crude oil carriers. 

The new 300,000dwt crude oil tanker, which has a length of 336m and a width of 60m, is an eco-friendly vessel that meets the environmental regulations of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and is equipped with the latest technologies from DSME .
