Nordic Tankers new LR1 product tanker Nordic Anne becomes the company’s first vessel to sail under the Danish flag.
‘The tanker was delivered from the Chinese shipyard New Times Shipbuilding on Tuesday.

The vessel will be included in TORM’s LR1 pool. “The fact that Nordic Anne is going to sail under the Danish flag reflects our appreciation of the great effort made by the Danish authorities for the shipping industry in Denmark. We expect that other Nordic Tankers vessels are going to operate under the Danish flag in the years to come”, says Chairman Klaus Kjærulff. Two more vessels are scheduled for delivery in the coming months: The handy-size vessels Nordic Agnetha and Amy, which Nordic Tankers co-owns with its business partner Zacchello Group, Italy.
