It looks as though Silver Fern Shipping is continuing it's tradition to use bird names in the Maori language for it's fleet.
Matuku = Heron ; Torea = Oystercatcher ; Kakariki = NZ Parakeet.
Thanks for the info, Robbie. This is one of the tankers that SPP shipyard routinely builds at its Sacheon facility; since every one of them has to pass beneath a rather low bridge, their superstructures are added later, at a different location.

One of 2 newbuilds to replace the current tonnage (torea and kakariki).
These newbuilds will carry more fuel but will be more fuel efficient.
