Bergesen orders chemical carriers
The vessels are for delivery 4th quarter 2005 and 4th quarter 2006. The contract price is $41.4 million per vessel.
The contract will contribute to a renewal of Bergesen's MGC-fleet. Two old vessels were sold for scrap in 2002/2003.
Bergesen is now controlled by the Sohmen Pao family. This is reflected in the new line up on the board of directors announced yesterday:
Bergesen also announced yesterday that deputy managing director Jan Håkon Pettersen will succeed Svein Erik Amundsen as managing director at the end of this year.
