Wilson adds six more mini-bulkers

Norway’s mini-bulker giant Wilson has bought six older ships from the Strømberg Group, paying for the vessels in shares. The transaction is priced at NOK94m ($11.22m).

The ships, due for delivery before year-end, are all in between 2,350 dwt and 2,850 dwt and were built between 1995 and 1997.

After the purchase, Wilson will operate a fleet of 114 vessels, of which 88 will be owned.
