HadiThe Hadi (IMO: 9362073, Port of Registry: Limassol, Cyprus) is a Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) of 333.2 meters long, 60 meters wide and a maximum draught of 22.5 meters. The Hadi was built at Hyundai Heavy Industries and delivered in 2007 to her owners National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC). She has been registered under the Cyprus flag for ease of international operations and to allow stakeholders maximum security over the asset. The vessel was the first of a series of 17 double-hull tankers - 13 VLCCs and four suezmaxes - which NITC had on order at four of the leading shipyards in Korea. The Hadi had been involved in an attempt to hijack the vessel in June 2009 off the coast of the Gulf of Aden. The vessel succeeded in fleeing from the attackers by taking evasive manoeuvres and firing parachute flares.

The Hadi arrived this morning at the Maasvlakte Oil Terminal carrying a load of crude oil from Khark Island, Iran. She will stay unloading for about 30 hours.
