Pallas makes tanker move

Swedens Pallas Group has added its first crude tanker. Sales registers show Splash that Smart Energy, a subsidiary of the company, has snapped up the 114,000 dwt Pytheas (built 2004), a ship sold by sold Greek owner Tsakos in June.

The Samsung Heavy Industries-built ship fetched $15m.

The tanker has been renamed Pallas Orust.

The Pallas group and its shipping outfit Pallas Shipping also has two bunker tankers, the 3,500 dwt Pallas Glory and a ship simply named Pallas.

Gothenburg-based Smart Energy aims to become a leading supplier of fuels to the Swedish people with a vision to have over 100 smart gas stations around Sweden within a five-year period. Equasis lists Smart Energy Logistics as the owner of the ship.
