A row over "outstanding bills" between a Norwegian scrubber provider and a major Greek shipowner has led to the arrest of a VLCC in Singapore.

Clean Marine, a maker of exhaust gas cleaning systems, moved against the 319,700-dwt Delta Apollonia (built 2015), a vessel owned by Athens-based Delta Tankers.

Lysaker-based Clean Marine confirmed in an email it had arrested the ship "on grounds of long outstanding bills".

Contacted by TradeWinds, Delta Tankers said it would move swiftly to have the vessel released.
