Karadeniz linked to another vessel buy

Brokers are reporting that Karadeniz has purchased a Japan-built aframax tanker, Nassau Energy, from Greek owner LL Energy for $11.8m.

The 18-year-old tanker will be the fourteenth vessel reported sold to the Turkish company since the year began. At least two of the vessels have been for conversion into floating power plants.

Karpowership, the buyer’s specialised subsidiary, currently has nine floating power stations on the water, four of which are deployed in Iraq, two in Lebanon and one each in Pakistan, Ghana and Indonesia.

At the end of August, Maersk Supply Service reportedly sold two of its anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels to Karadeniz at an undisclosed price.
