Thoresen confirms supramax acquisition

Nearly two months after Splash first reported the deal, Thai owner Thoresen has confirmed the acquisition of 2008-built supramax bulker Maritime Unity.

The 58,700 dwt vessel was sold by Japanese owner Okouchi Kaiun for $14m, and has been renamed Thor Chaiyo.

Thoresen’s owned fleet rises to 22 vessels with the acquisition.
