De Tijd: The mega tanker that turned Euronav into a mega tanker owner

Belgian newspaper De Tijd visited the VLCC Alice.  Underneath you can find a brief summary of their article and the video of their visit.

Having her deliver a cargo of crude oil in Singapore from Rotterdam costs almost 2 million euro. Welcome on the Alice, one of the 30 super tankers that made Euronav the biggest independent tanker owner in the world. “This is the newest generation of oil tankers. Before, we could only dream of the luxuries we have on board now." Captain Van Regemorter shows us the ozone installation. The vessels also have a double hull to prevent pollution in case of an accident. Moreover, there’s a double fuel supply: one for the heavy fuel and one for diesel. “All those facilities make me extra proud of this ship. It makes me feel good and it allows Euronav to be ahead of its competitors.”

During the visit De Tijd also recorded a video which you can find on our Youtube page.
