News bers of VLCCs and Aframaxes in the first half of the year, but the Suezmax sector seemed relatively neglected. However, this situation changed in the third quarter of the year, with shipyards taking firm orders for about fifty vessels. "This now means that the orderbook of 103 vessels represents some 29 percent of the total fleet and 31 per cent of the fleet trading in crude oil, excluding US domestic trade. The size of the orderbook is particularly significant when compared to the fleet of non double-hull vessels, which comprises 67 vessels, of which only seven face mandatory phase-out under IMO regulations before 2010." "Suezmax Market Outlook - 2011 and Fleet Ownership and Employment Analysis", which includes full listings of all known Suezmaxes in the trading fleet and on order on October 1, 2006, is available for $750, in either PDF format or hard copy.

The company has invested in the facility itself and its newly formed display development division, Optical Technology, AS (OTE). Plant 2 consists of two integrated clean room facilities. In addition, the state-of-the-art facility has constant temperature and humidity control, and is designed for the processing of static sensitive devices. The new facility, the first of its kind in Europe, will be used to produce the new Series 2 line of optical bonded display products introduced by JHD to its marine moni- tors. Optically bonded displays provide several unique benefits including near perfect sunlight viewing, and the permanent elimination of condensation and salt crystal formation. Plant 2 will also be used for developing and implementing advanced processes and applications of optical technology display products, including those used for the military. JHD is renowned for providing solutions to overcome the environmental challenges faced by marine and naval monitors, and Plant 2 will vastly increase the capacity of both JHD and OTE to develop new generations of optical display products and technologies.
