Sinokor orders VLCC pair at Hyundai Heavy

Sinokor has ordered a pair of VLCCs at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI). The big 320,000 dwt tankers will deliver late next year.

Sinokor has 11 VLCCs trading at the moment plus another two on order at the same Korean yard.

Yesterday Splash reported that another South Korean firm, H-Line Shipping, had put pen to paper for a pair of 300,000 dwt VLCCs also at HHI.

HHI has had a very strong start to 2018 and is easily on course to beat its annual sales target.
