Odfjell SE has announced the purchase of M/T Argent Eyebright, a stainless steel chemical product tanker. The vessel was built in November 2009 by Kitanihon Shipbuilding in Japan.
The vessel has 16 stainless steel tanks and fits well with the company's fleet of large stainless steel tankers. The purchase is in line with Odfjell's fleet renewal strategy.
The Argent Eyebright has been on short term time charter to Odfjell Tankers since January 2017, and will be purchased at a price of US$25.5 million. The vessel will be renamed and put under the Norwegian International Ship Register (NIS) flag after closing the transaction at the end of June.
