She is manufactured as a complete double skin double bottom unit with a bulbous bow and transom stern with an open water frame. It has two longitudinal bulkheads in the cargo area. The cargo tanks and engine room of the vessel are protected by ballast tanks. She is owned by the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC).
