CCNI snaps up tanker pair

Santiago: Shorn of its container fleet Compania Chilena de Navegacion Interoceanica (CCNI) is setting about bolstering other parts of its empire, signing for two tankers this week.

CCNI, which is in the process of selling its container division to Hamburg Sud, is buying a pair of 50,000 dwt product tankers from Norden Shipping (Singapore) for $36.5m each.

The ships will transport fuel between Chilean ports on a five-year contract to the nation’s state run energy conglomerate, Empresa Nacional del Petroleo (ENAP).
