Shipping Corporation of India Ltd, a Navratna enterprise, has added another Suezmax tanker to its massive fleet of 69 vessels.

SCI is the largest shipping company in India, with a tonnage which has now reached 6.01 million dead weight.
 
It acquired the South Korean built, secondhand Suezmax tanker from Liberia, on April 26, 2017. The vessel has been rechristened as “m.t. Desh Abhimaan” and is the largest vessel in SCI’s fleet of 7 Suezmax tankers.
 
The vessel has a gross tonnage of 81,084 tonnes and complies with the latest and most stringent international regulations. 
 
Energy transportation has continued to remain the core business segment for SCI and induction of this vessel in the fleet is expected to strengthen its position in the energy transportation sector.
 
The enterprise now commands a fleet of vessels of different types like very large crude oil carriers, product tankers, bulk carriers, cellular container vessels, crude oil carriers, LPG/ammonia carriers and offshore vessels.
