Wisby inks tanker duo

Sweden’s Wisby Tankers is heading back to Croatia for more tanker newbuildings.

The 3 Maj shipyard said in a stock exchange announcement that it will build two 15,000-dwt ships for the owner for delivery in late 2015 or 2016.

No price was given, but the vessels will carry asphalt, oils and chemicals.

Wisby currently has two 2,250-dwt tankers due from 3 Maj this year.

It took delivery of four ships of around 15,000 dwt from the yard in 2012 and 2013.
