Thailand’s Thoresen Thai Agencies has disposed of Thor Enterprise, a 42,500 dwt bulk carrier.

The ship was sold by Thoresen Shipping Singapore (TSS) for USD 5.6 million.

Although Thoresen has not identified the buyer of the vessel, Thor Enterprise, renamed Asian Enterprise, was sold to India’s Hermes Maritime last month, data provided by VesselsValue shows.

Built at Japanese Namura shipyard in 1995, the Handymax vessel was bought by Thoresen back in 2004.

“The sale is in line with prevailing dry bulk shipping conditions, in which older vessels become less competitive and less able to meet operating costs,” Thoresen Thai Agencies explained.

“The TSS’s Board of Directors resolved to sell the said vessel, and the proceeds from the sale are in line with the company’s strategy to improve the efficiency of the fleet and the company’s fleet renewal program,” the company added.

Following the sale of Thor Enterprise, the Thoresen fleet will comprise 21 vessels with an average size of 55,285 dwt and an average age of 11.24 years.
