Dutch tanker owner and operator Anthony Veder has purchased all four modern gas tankers from Italian L.G.R. di Navigazione S.p.A.
“With this unique transaction Anthony Veder is further rejuvenating its fleet, while at the same time maintaining its high standards in providing safe and efficient shipping tonnage to its clients,” the company said in a comment.
The 4000 CBM semi pressurized/fully refrigerated gas carriers Castel Dell’ Ovo (2007) and Castello Di Gradara (2009) have already been commercially managed by Anthony Veder since early 2015 and they will be delivered to Anthony Veder in the coming months. They will be renamed Coral Medusa and Coral Monactis respectively.
The 8000 CBM ethylene carriers Castel Nuovo (2009) and Castel Sant’ Elmo (2009) are expected to be delivered to Anthony Veder shortly after that, after leaving the Lauritzen Kosan Pool. They will be renamed Coral Pearl and Coral Patula, the company said.
“We are very happy with this transaction since it ties in perfectly with our long term strategy to continuously improve the efficiency and the flexibility of the services we provide to our customers,” said Jan Valkier, Anthony Veder’s CEO.
The vessels will trade in North West Europe, in Anthony Veder’s pool of gas tankers.
