Abu Dhabi’s rapidly expanding Al Seer Marine has outlined plans to boost its fleet after confirming a swoop for two Sovcomflot VLCCs.

It said in a stock exchange filing that it had spent AED 404m ($110m) on the 321,000-dwt SCF Shanghai (built 2014) and Svet (built 2013), renamed Twin Pollux and Twin Castor.

Brokers have also reported the owner as acquiring two Sovcomflot LPG carriers, the 20,550-cbm Sibur Voronezh and 20,311-cbm Sibur Tobol (both built 2013).
