ABS to Class Kyklades VLCCs

MarineLink

ABS said it has been selected to class two additional very large crude carriers (VLCC) being built for Greek shipping company Kyklades Maritime Corporation. The contract brings the number of Kyklades VLCC orders classed by ABS to four, with two already under construction.

The 319,000-dwt vessels, each 330 meters long, are being built by Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and are expected to be delivered in 2020.

ABS Vice President, Europe, Vasillios Kroustadis, said, "ABS is the number one class society in Greece and a global leader in the classification of tankers. Our selection for this project reflects our strong reputation in both areas."

ABS said it has a 29 percent share of the global tanker orderbook.
