Choosing Mooring Ropes for the Tanker Kimolos

Kyklades Maritime Corporation is a Greek shipping company that since 1985 has been known for high standards, maritime tradition and professionalism. Its excellent worldwide reputation has led to trading with Major Oil Companies.

Katradis Marine Ropes Ind. shares this passion for excellence and high standards. This has led to a longstanding cooperation between the two companies. Specifically for more than 5 years , Katradis has been the exclusive supplier-manufacturer of UHMWPE mooring ropes for Kyklades Maritime Corporation with NIKA SIRI® S-12 mooring ropes.

NIKA-Siri® S-12 mooring ropes have equipped all 7 new technology oil tankers of Kyklades Maritime Corporation. The ropes’ performance, quality and reliability exceeded expectations.

So naturally, when the time came to choose mooring ropes for MT “KIMOLOS”, a Suezmax new technology tanker built at the Japanese JMU shipyard, Kyklades Maritime Corporation turned again to Katradis.
