Hafnia Acquires Two MR IMO II 2017 built Chemical Vessels

May 24 2023

Hafnia has acquired two 2017 built IMO II MR Chemical vessels.

In line with Hafnia’s fleet renewal strategy which has seen the divestment of five older ships earlier this year at a market optimal time, Hafnia has acquired two 2017 built IMO II MR Chemical vessels.


The vessels are the 49,700-dwt Wisby Atlantic (now HAFNIA ATLANTIC) and Wisby Pacific (to become HAFNIA PACIFIC, which will be delivered in Q2) formerly jointly owned by Sweden’s Rederi AB Gotland and Wisby Tankers.


The two vessels will join the growing Hafnia MR Chemical/IMO2 Pool which will now count nine vessels. The ships are traded alongside our Handy Chemical/IMO2 Pool, with Hafnia’s Deepsea Chemical/IMO2 Fleet currently standing at 33 ships.


In light of this fleet update, Head of Chemicals Chartering Atle Sebjornsen, VP states ‘We are excited about adding these two modern Chemical IMO2 MRs to our fleet. Hafnia has built substantial scale in the chemical segment in a short period of time and the acquisition of these ships will further strengthen our presence in the deep sea chemical market and enable us to offer additional sailings and increased flexibility to our valued partners and clients in the segment’.
