Singapore’s Wilmar continues to grow its tanker fleet, snapping up a pair of 9,000 dwt small chemical tankers from Bergen-headquartered Odfjell, according to broking reports.
Seasure Shipbroking and Advanced Shipping & Trading both list Wilmar as the $13m en bloc buyer of 2004-built chemical tankers Bow Asia and Bow Singapore. The Fukuoka-built vessels are worth a little over $8m each according to VesselsValue.
The vessels were reported sold by various brokers last week, however no buyer was mentioned in the reports.
Wilmar has been an active buyer of late, having last month bought MR tanker Stavanger Breeze from Norway’s DSD Shipping for $8.65m.
