Sigma Signs Up Nan Fung

November 5, 2013

Heidmar is warmly welcoming a new pool member and an additional two Aframax ships to its Sigma Tankers Pool.

Nan Fung Shipping, part of the Nan Fung Group, has committed the Baltic Galaxy and the Caspian Galaxy to Heidmar’s Aframax/LR2 fleet. Both ships are 2009 built and 114,500 deadweight. They will deliver later this year and will increase Sigma’s fleet size to 39 ships.

Speaking about the new arrivals Heidmar’s Sigma Tankers Pool MD, Glenn Gronseth, said; “We have been in contact with Nan Fung Shipping for a number of years and they have followed Sigma’s progress and performance very closely.”

“The growth of the pool and its exceptional performance in both the Aframax and LR2 markets, along with Heidmar’s unmatched reputation for total reporting transparency, has shown them that Sigma Tankers is the natural home for trading Aframax tonnage. We are very pleased to welcome Nan Fung to the pool.”
