Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has taken delivery of VLCC, 'Phoenix Jamnagar' from Japan Marine United Corporation's Ariake works. The ship will be placed under control of MOL's wholly-owned subsidiary Phoenix Tankers, based in Singapore.

The 339.5m vessel was designed and developed by JMU as a next-generation Malacca Max Type VLCC and will be primarily employed on crude oil transportation to India under a long-term contract between Phoenix and Reliance Industries. With 311,798 dwt at 21.085m max draught, the ship is classed by ClassNK and is powered by an MAN B&W 7G80ME-C9.5 main engine for a service speed of 15.5 knots.

MOL says it will further enhance its relationship with Reliance and will contribute to the rapid growth of India's crude oil imports by providing safe and high-quality ocean transport service.
