Hanjin rolls off 12th Subic-made vessel

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — Hanjin Heavy Industries Corporation-Philippines, Inc. recently rolled off the M/T Eser K, a 114,000-deadweight ton crude oil tanker, the 12th vessel completed in their shipbuilding facility inside this premier Freeport.

The US$68-million vessel was officially presented to its owner, the Turkey-based Kaptanoglu Shipping Line, during a formal naming ceremony on Wednesday at HHIC-Phils. Redondo Peninsula shipyard.

Those who graced the naming ceremony were Kaptanoglu president Engin Kaptanoglu, representatives of the ship classification society Lloyds Register, HHIC-Phil President Seung Chil Lee, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) senior deputy administrator Ramon Agregado and other officials.

HHIC-Phils. senior executive vice-president Hyun Soo Bong said the M/T Eser K and its twin, the M/T Leyla K, were the biggest ships ever built in the Philippines.

Eser K and Leyla K, which was delivered in January this year, both tipped the scales at 114,000-DWT, and measured 241.27 meters long, 44 meters wide, and 21.35 meters deep.

“Eser K is the last tanker we built for Kaptanoglu, but I would like to emphasize that this is another beginning for us as we develop sincere partnership between Kaptanoglu and Hanjin-Philippines,” said Hyun. By JONAS REYES - Manila Bulletin
