Earlier on March 30, SCI had signed a loan deal of USD 103.28 million with KFW of Germany, in association with Citigroup and Nordea Bank, for funding purchase of another VLCC of same capacity.

These two VLCCs are the largest ships to be ordered under Indian registry, surpassing earlier two VLCCs of 3,16,000 DWT each acquired by SCI, the company informed the Bombay Stock Exchange.

These VLCCs are being built by South Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering, it added.
