Turkey’s leading tugboat operator and shipbuilder Med Marine keeps proving its place in shipbuilding industry with successful newbuilding projects, vessel launches and deliveries.
Med Marine successfully launched another 8400DWT chemical/oil tanker at its group-owned Ereğli Shipyard.
It is the 9th 8400DWT tanker and the 21st tanker in all deadweight categories that Med Marine built so far. MED EMRE, with hull number ER08, is being built for YMN Tanker Marine Management and it will be the 6th tanker with same deadweight ton capacity in the fleet.
In April 2019, newly-built slightly shorter version, MED TUNCER joined the fleet and another unit is expected to join right after MED EMRE.
MED EMRE has similar specifications as her sisters:
