NYSE-listed DHT Holdings has sealed a three-year charter for one of its three 2012-built VLCCs.
The charter, with an unnamed refining company, will commence after the vessel completes a scrubber retrofit in the fourth quarter of this year. The charter has a base rate of $30,000 per day, with room to move up to $37,500 per day based on a profit sharing structure that includes scrubber economics.
DHT Holdings, now 33.5% owned by Singapore’s BW Group, moved its management structure from Oslo to Singapore earlier this year. The company owns a fleet of 27 VLCCs.
