 According to sources the order is from Russia’s state shipping firm Sovcomflot.

The shuttle tankers will have a capacity of 42,000 dwt each and the newbuildings are scheduled to be completed by April 2017.

With the latest deal, SHI has a combined total of $5.9bn in orders, and more orders are expected later this year, according to the shipbuilder.
