Hanan Shipping is to add a sixth tanker in its fleet. A public notice from the local Coast Guard in Augusta, Italy, informs that the 1999-built medium range tanker Alberta Amoretti will soon change hands from Marittima Emiliana, part of the Amoretti Armatori group, to the Dubai-based buyer.
Hanan currently owns 3 small tankers and 2 handysize tankers with an average age of 32 and 20 years respectively.
The price of the deal was not disclosed but according to VesselsValue the Alberta’s current market value stands around $5m.
This sale is part of a wider fleet rejuvenation plan of the Parma-based shipping company, which last summer also bought a pair of modern MR1 tankers, one of them was delivered few days ago by Gotland Rederi and renamed Lady Mariella.
