Odfjell SE adds two vessels to fleet

Odfjell SE has announced the conclusion of long term bareboat charter agreements for two additional chemical tankers with stainless steel cargo tanks.

The Company also exercises a purchase option for one vessel. The agreements are in line with the Company’s strategic targets for fleet renewal and growth.

The bareboat charter agreements include two vessels of 36,000 dwt with 28 stainless steel cargo tanks. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in Q4 2019 and Q2 2020, and the charter agreements run for a minimum of ten years.

Odfjell SE has announced that the Company has exercised its purchase option for Bow Architect, a 2005 built 30,000 dwt stainless steel chemical tanker with 28 cargo tanks.

Last month, Odfjell entered into another long term charter agreement for two 35,500 dwt stainless steel chemical tankers. These charter agreements will run for a minimum of eight years, and the vessels are scheduled for delivery in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019.

The agreements and the purchase of Bow Architect are in line with the new Odfjell strategy launched in February, where the Company announced its targets for tonnage renewal and fleet growth.
