SCF beats Hafnia to take over Primorsk fleet

SCF Tankers, an affiliate of Sovcomflot, beat rivals to win at auction the sale of nine ice-class tankers belonging to bankrupt Primorsk International Shipping. SCF bid $215m for the fleet, beating Hafnia Tankers’ $208m bid at an auction in London.

Primorsk International Shipping has now asked a bankruptcy judge to approve the sale. The company filed for chapter 11 protection in January.
