Alexander Saverys believes the battle lines are clear in the fight to control Belgian tanker owner Euronav.

He is seeking shareholders’ support to oust the board of tanker company.

Saverys is adopting that stance after the board rejected a plan by Euronav’s majority shareholder to take the tanker company down the decarbonisation route.

“The choice will be very clear,” the CMB chief executive told TradeWinds.
