The Company, incorporated in Belgium, is headquartered in Antwerp and has offices throughout Europe and Asia. Worldwide, Euronav employs approximately 200 permanent personnel on shore and around 3,200 people work on the vessels.

The need to operate a safe and reliable fleet has never been more crucial and it is the most important strategic objective for the Company. Euronav aims to be an efficient organisation and strives to deliver the highest quality and best possible service to its customers.
Euronav has a long-term strategy of through-cycle-profitability by adapting its balance sheet leverage and liquidity position in accordance with the sources of its revenues which can be fixed (long-term FSO Income and/or TC portfolio) or floating (pool and spot) revenues.
Sustainability is a core value at Euronav as it ensures the long-term health and success of our people, our business and the environment we work in. It involves a commitment to safety and environmental protection practices, as well as an innovative approach to the use of technology and information.
By employing officers who graduated from the most reputable maritime academies in the world on board a modern fleet, Euronav aims to operate in the top end of the market. The skills of its directly employed seagoing officers and shore-based captains and engineers give a competitive edge in the maintenance, as well as in the operations and delivery of offshore projects.
