Odfjell offloads chemical tanker to Taihua for $5m

Norway’s Odfjell Tankers has sold 2000-built small chemical tanker Bow Andes to Hong Kong-based Chinese owner Taihua Ship Management, according to brokers.

Both Seasure Shipbrokers and Advanced Shipping and Trading are reporting the sale of the Japanese-built 16,000 dwt vessel for $5m. The tanker, which has a special survey due, is valued by VesselsValue at $5.23m.

If confirmed, the acquisition will grow the Taihua fleet to 13 vessels made up exclusively of small oil and chemical tankers.
