Steinar Nerbovik, APSI's President and CEO stated his gratitude to the producers of the vessel on behalf of each employee he represents. The first tanker of this kind which company operates since 2014 has influenced company's efficiency and there is no doubt that the new addition to SeaRiver's fleet will cause the same synergy.

The facts behind the words show the high expectation are due to the special technology, used in the aerospace industry and the U.S. Department of Defense, implemented into the vessels construction.

The ship's engine is complying with regulatory standards for generating even lower air emissions, than permitted. There are aslo double hulls for all cargo and fuel tanks. All systems implemented onboard are energy-saving, which as a consequence is cost-effective.
