Norwegian shortsea liner shipping company Wilson ASA has decided to dispose of one bulk carrier oldie and acquire two 5,000 dwt bulkers.

The company has entered into an agreement with an unnamed party to sell MV Wilson Reef, an open hatch singledecker built in 1975.

The 6,258 dwt vessel is expected to be delivered to its new owner in the first quarter of 2020, according to Wilson.

In a separate announcement, the company said it signed an agreement to buy the 2007-built MV Lauren C and the 2008-built MV Nicole C.

VesselsValue’s data shows that both ships are owned by UK’s Carisbrooke Shipping.

The ships, which will be renamed, are planned to be acquired during the first quarter of 2020.

Marking the company’s entry into the 5,000 dwt segment, the acquisition is said to underpin “Wilson’s long-term belief in the market”.
