The vessel is named after Hercules, son of Jupiter and famous for his great strength.
The vessel is 306.005 DWT. She was built at Daewoo in South Korea in 2007.
OSM Ship Management has now been entrusted a total of five VLCCs from Genmar. These vessels are all heavyweight. The oil tankers are more than 300 meters LOA and more than 300.000 DWT. No wonder they are named after Greek and Roman mythological figures: Ulysses, Zeus, Poseidon, Hercules and Atlas.
- These vessels are really state of the art, says Capt. John B. Hough, Managing Director of OSM Ship Management.
