Another tanker also headed to Finnart today. She was a little larger at 159,549 tonnes deadweight, and has an overall length of 274.7 metres. DA LI HU is owned by the Dalian Ocean Shipping Company, part of the COSCO group, and was completed at the end of 2004 by the Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co. DA LI HU is operating for Blue Fin Tankers, the subsidiary company of the Heidmar Group that specialises in the Suezmax size of ship. As might be expected for a Chinese-built, Chinese-owned, and Chinese-flagged ship, her crew are indeed Chinese!
