Norway’s Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC) is expecting a big jump in tanker trades this year for its versatile vessels.

The Oslo-listed owner is taking advantage of strong wet markets as earnings grow.

Preliminary time charter equivalent (TCE) earnings for its Cabu caustic soda and dry cargo ships were $25,800 per day in the fourth quarter.

For the Cleanbu oil product/dry cargo vessels, the figure was $36,800 per day.
