TEN Orders Two 1A
Tsakos Energy Navigation Limited (TEN) ordered two suezmax, double hull. 1A ice-class 162,400-dwt tankers.
The vessels are scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2007. Both vessels are to be constructed by Hyundai Heavy
Industries (HHI). and represent the 26th and 27th vessels in TEN's newbuilding program since 1997. TEN's manage- ment believes that these vessels will be in heavy demand by Russian.
