Having kept its powder dry all year Greek shipping giant Thenamaris has finally made a move.
Clarkson Research reports the owner has gone to Japan for tankers.
The company has reportedly put pen to paper for two 111,890 dwt aframaxes to be built at Sumitomo Heavy Industries. The ships will deliver in 2020 and no price has been mentioned for the pair.
Thenamaris now has seven ships on order at yards in South Korea and Japan – a mix of aframaxes, suezmaxes plus two LPG carriers.
