CMEC-Fixes-Four-VLCCs-622x463As the sanctions against Iran are being lifted the British classification society Lloyd’s Register is readying for a comeback to the country.
Lloyd’s Register told World Maritime News that they are able to provide classification services to Iranian controlled tonnage and that the society will be re-opening its office in Tehran.
The classification society had provided its services to ships owned by NITC and IRISL until 2012 when sanctions against Iran were introduced.
Lifting of sanctions against Iran will mean that 14.1 million DWT of Iranian tankers would be free to trade globally.
Iran’s tanker fleet is valued today at USD 2.7 billion and is currently placed 8th in the world by value. NITC, Iran’s largest VLCC owner, is ranked 6th in the world, owning 37 VLCCs worth USD 2.1 billion, according to VesselsValue’s data.
On Monday, Mehr News Agency (MNA) reported that the society has lifted one of its sanctions against Iran thus allowing for the country’s oil tankers to enter the European Union’s oil ports and terminals. However, Lloyd’s Register could not confirm this to World Maritime News.

    They appear so comparable. But as nasty as br is, I’m treating it like its a br. When I tried killing one I attempted 3 diverse sprays, and hardly phased it. It was intelligent as well. Played dead.

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    I drop a comment each time I like a post on a website or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It is triggered by the passion communicated in the post I read. And on this post Lloyd’s Register Returning to Iran. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have some questions for you if it’s okay. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of the responses come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you list the complete urls of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
