Hunter Group has been appointed to provide technical newbuild supervision services to Hartree Martime’s four VLCC newbuilds contracted to Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

“Hunter Group is very pleased to have been given the opportunity to provide newbuilding supervision services to Hartree. We believe this agreement will provide both companies with significant cost savings and synergies. Our experienced technical team is now responsible for the building supervision of 11 sister vessels all to be constructed at DSME between October 2018 and August 2020. Hunter Group is also very pleased to have found a partner that shares the same high standards in business practices and we look forward to working with Hartree on this venture,” said Erik Frydendal, CEO of Hunter Group.

Guy Merison, managing director of Hartree Maritime Partners, added: “Hartree Maritime Partners is equally pleased to be working with Hunter Group ASA in provision of technical newbuild supervision for the construction of the eleven sister DSME VLCC vessels.  It is Hartree and Hunter’s intention to form a new scrubber fitted pool to operate this fleet of eleven eco VLCC vessels. By combining Hartree’s global Trading and Chartering experience and Hunter’s technical knowledge this pool will serve to minimize operational costs whilst maximizing earnings. We will be working with other scrubber fitted VLCC operators to expand this pool.”
