Atlantica Shipping has invested in a platform support vessel just days after offloading an MR tanker.

The Norwegian asset player acquired the 3,300-dwt former Energy Scout (built 2005) from Oslo-listed Golden Energy Offshore for $6.45m and renamed it Atlantica Server.

Fearnley Securities, which acted as sole arranger for the project, said the vessel was delivered to its new owner in Aberdeen, Scotland on 19 January.
