Economou takes Shell VLCC

George Economou’s TMS Tankers has been linked by brokers as the buyer of the 2011-built Orthis VLCC. TMS is thought to be paying Shell $57m for the 319,300 dwt ship, which was formerly trading as the Andromeda Glory.

TMS operates a wide range of tankers including aframaxes, suexmaxes and product carriers. The Orthis is its fourth VLCC to go along with the Desimi, Solana and Universal Brave.
