Nordic Tankers continues to rejig its business, selling Danish tanker specialist Herning Shipping. ANE Shipping, a new Norwegian partnership between Camillo Eitzen & Co, Axel C. Eitzen, Castel, Erik Bartnes, Seahorse Maritime and Nicolai Heidenreich, has paid an undisclosed sum to take over Herning.
Herning Shipping’s roots date back to 1963 in the city of Herning in Denmark. The intention is now to rename Herning Shipping to Christiania Shipping.
Christiania Shipping will be located in Copenhagen with Axel C. Eitzen as CEO. He commented: “I look forward to further building on Herning Shipping’s strong relations with existing and potential customers, and to develop a solid foundation for future business.”
The Herning fleet comprises 19 tankers, 12 of which are owned, ranging in size between 3,000 and 11,000 dwt. It serves customers primarily in Northern Europe and West Africa.
At the start of this month Nordic Tankers and Embarcadero Maritime – a joint venture between Borealis Maritime and KKR – sealed a deal to sell the jointly held company Crystal Nordic to John T. Essberger in Hamburg.
