Solstad Rederi AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Norway’s Solstad Offshore ASA, has sold the AHTS Sea Panther for recycling. The 74 meter long, 174 tonnes bollard pull vessel was delivered by the Kværner Kleven Leirvik shipyard in 1999.

Delivery of the vessel took place today August 20, 2021 and Solstad says its sale “will result in an immaterial accounting effect” for third quarter 2021.

Solstad Offshore ASA says it is considering several vessels for green recycling at European shipyards, with a focus on the highest standard on green recycling.
