The term "Aframax" refers to the size of the vessel, which falls within the range of 80,000 to 120,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT). This particular Aframax crude oil tanker has a DWT of 101,603 tonnes and was built in August 1995.
The vessel is classified by Bureau Veritas (BV) and is equipped with various safety features and systems, including the International Hull and Machinery and Automated Universal Management System (I+HULL+MACH+AUT-UMS), and the Monitoring and Control System (MON-SHAFT ERS-S), which are required by international regulations for safe operation of the ship.
The tanker has a length overall (LOA) of 244.30 meters and a beam of 39.40 meters, with a depth of 21.30 meters. It is equipped with seven cargo tanks and two slop tanks, with a total cargo capacity of 104,163 cubic meters plus slop.
