Tuesday, August 01, 2006
A/S Dampskibsselskabet Torm, a Danish shipping company, is selling three of its tankers for a total of $63m. The move is part of Torm's strategy of selling older bulk vessels so it can build its fleet of bigger Panamax bulk vessels. Torm did not disclose who is buying the three older vessels. Following delivery of the three vessels, TORM's owned fleet will consist of 30 product tankers and five dry bulk vessels. Besides its owned fleet, the company operates nearly 100 ships.
