Kuwait Oil Tanker Company has taken delivery of the giant crude oil tanker “Al-Siddiq” from China’s shipbuilding company Bohai — signaling the first such cooperation between the country and Beijing.

Abdulnasser Al-Fulaij, the KOTC CEO, said in a statement to KUNA on Sunday that by receiving Al-Siddiq,

the company’s fleet grew to 32 tankers of various sizes and purposes, affirming keenness on meeting the market demand for the crude oil and derivatives.

The new tanker is of a 333 meters’ length, 60-m width, with a cargo capacity of nearly 323 metric tons of crude — equivalent to 2.25 million barrels. Its cargo can be unloaded in less than 24 hours.

Al-Fulaij noted that it is friendly to the environment with equipment for treating diverse types of gases and other pollutants. (end) km.rk
