The newly built Suezmax tanker Maran Solon was delivered to Maran Tankers Management on January 4, the Greek operator said on social media.

The Greek-flagged, 157,000 dwt Suezmax is classed by ABS and was built by Daehan Shipbuilding Co. in South Korea.

The handover follows the 2020 deliveries of DNV GL-classed Maran Phoebe and Maran Orpheus, as well as ABS-classed Maran Aspasia, all Greek-flagged and built by Daehan.

Maran Tankers also has a pair of 318,000 dwt very large crude carriers (VLCC) on order from South Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), due for delivery in May and July 2021. These vessels will be flagged in the Bahamas.
