Two further product tankers for Ardmore

Two further product tankers for Ardmore
Ardmore Shipping has acquired two second-hand 47,000 dwt MR product tankers for $23m each.

Built at Onomichi Dockyard in Japan in 2008, both tankers are expected to be delivered between July and October 2014 and will be deployed on either the spot market or time charters.

“We are pleased to announce the acquisition of these modern MR product tankers at attractive prices,” said Ardmore ceo Anthony Gurnee. “The vessels are Japanese-built and very fuel-efficient, in line with our strategy of acquiring high-quality MRs that we can upgrade to Eco-mod.”

Adding to a further second-hand purchase last month, the new acquisitions will bring the Ardmore fleet up to 24 vessels with 14 in operation and 10 eco-design product and chemical tankers to be delivered by Q4 2015.
