oil tanker cargo ship / VLCC
Oil tankers are divided into crude oil tankers, product tankers which transport refined oil products, and shuttle tankers which transport crude oil produced from offshore production facility to facility on land such as FPSO.
In 1992, SHI built the first Aframax-class double-hull oil tanker and has been making continuous efforts to develop eco-friendly vessels ever since.
A shuttle tanker is a high value-added ship equipped with a sophisticated position control system that enables the ship to maintain its position offshore an oil production installation despite wind, waves, and currents.
In this field, SHI ranks first with the largest market share in the world by ordering 45 out of 115 shuttle tankers contracted worldwide.
