Serial Greek tanker buyer IMS SA has added a further acquisition deal under its belt, bringing the total number of ships it purchased over the past two years to 19 vessels.

Market sources are identifying the Piraeus-based company as the new owner of the 52,400-dwt Alhena (built 2012) and 50,000-dwt Paradise City (built 2009), in two separate deals believed to have cost the firm about $60m in total.
