We are excited to extend a very warm welcome to MV Ubuntu Empathy, which joins the Anglo-Eastern fleet under the full technical management of our Singapore office.
The Capesize+ LNG dual-fuel bulk carrier, along with its twin MV Ubuntu Humanity, were christened in a special double naming ceremony held on May 9th in Shanghai. Anglo-Eastern Technical Services (AETS) proudly supervised both newbuilds, which weigh in at around 190K dwt each and will be used to transport more for less, with an expanded carrying capacity exceeding 200K m3 and a 35% reduced carbon footprint. Commissioned to support Anglo American’s iron mining operations in Brazil and South Africa, the two ships are the newest additions to its elite ‘Ubuntu’ fleet – the Zulu word for “I am, because you are” to emphasise the importance of community.
Congratulations to Anglo American, AETS, and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding on the delivery of these two magnificent vessels. We look forward to welcoming Ubuntu Humanity to the Anglo-Eastern family over the coming days. Until then, fair winds and smooth/following seas!
