In line with its fleet renewal strategy, Norwegian shipping and tank terminal company Odfjell informed it has bought M/T Argent Eyebright, a Handy chemical tanker. 

The 33,600 dwt ship was purchased from Singapore-based MOL Chemical Tankers, VesselsValue’s data shows.

As disclosed, Argent Eyebright has been on short-term time charter to Odfjell Tankers since January 2017 and will be bought for USD 25.5 million.

Built by Japan-based Kitanihon Shipbuilding in November 2009, Argent Eyebright features a length of 170 meters and a width of 26.6 meters.

“The vessel has 16 stainless steel tanks and fits well with our fleet of large stainless steel tankers,” Odfjell said.

After closing the transaction in late June, the vessel will be renamed and put under Norwegian International Ship Register (NIS) flag, according to the company.

Currently, Odfjell’s fleet comprises some 80 tankers with a carrying capacity ranging from 4,000 to 75,000 dwt.
