The Janah Star (IMO: 9384227, Port of Registry: Monrovia, Liberia) is the fifth of six very large crude carriers ordered from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering by her owners Vela International. She was deliverd at the end of 2008. The vessel is 333 meters long, 60 meters wide and has a maximum draught of 22.5 meters, giving the vessel a deadweight of 319,500. The ship can carry 2.2 million barrels (350,000 m3) of crude oil. The Janah Star is a sister vessel of the Sirius Star, which was hijacked by Somali pirates on November 15, 2008, becoming the largest ship ever captured by pirates. Sirius Star was released on January 9, 2009, after the payment of a ransom.

The Janah Star arrived this morning at the TEAM Terminal Rotterdam where she will stay unloading for about 24 hours.
