At the end of 2010, Nordic American had 15 vessels employed in the market. Through disciplined financial management and a well-defined operating model, the Company is expected to have a fleet of 19 suezmax vessels when the Nordic Zenith joins the fleet in October, representing a fleet increase of about 26% in less than a year.
