Astomos Energy, the biggest LPG distributor and trader in Japan, has chosen Maersk Tankers as voyage manager for, initially, five very large gas carriers (VLGCs).
The Maersk Tankers service includes day-to-day vessel operations, fuel optimisation and claims handling. It covers full post-fixture support from the time the vessel is fixed for a voyage, through its successful execution, to the closure of the voyage books.
“We are honored to commence the partnership with Maersk Tankers, not only pursuing efficient operation but also environmental goals. We are convinced the collaboration with experienced specialists will contribute to solving a global challenge and achieving sustainable prosperity,” says Kei Sakaguchi, General Manager of Supply and Trading department, International division at Astomos Energy.
