On the 16th August 2013 at 1615 hrs local time the Japanese built vessel MV AEC Belief was successfully delivered to AEC.
AEC has opted in flying Bahamas Flag being very much in line with the Groups domicile.
‘We are dedicated to support the local shipping community, so it was not hard to decide on the flag. We have a good relationship with the Bahamas Maritime Authority and the intention is to register the future AEC vessels in Bahamas as well. Bahamas flag is well respected worldwide and especially within the Bulk Carriers segment’ says Thomas Mayr, Head of AEC S&P.
Everything went as planned and it was a pleasure to work with the first class Japanese sellers’ says Mr. Mayr continues.
