Okeanis Eco Tankers has fixed a scrubber-fitted spot VLCC at a time charter equivalent rate way above what is on offer to non-retrofitted sisterships.

The Oslo-listed Greek owner's 319,000-dwt Nissos Anafi (built 2020) will load Brazilian crude for a Chinese charterer in mid-February at an estimated TCE of $15,000 to $16,000 per day, according to Fearnley Securities.

Another source told TradeWinds that the voyage will earn in the mid-$17,000s per day, with ballast time optimised.
