Erria has contracted an agreement on taking nine new chemical tankers into commercial management.
In a time with every shipping company trying to reduce their fleets as much as possible, the Danish shipping company Erria moves in the opposite direction. The shipping company has contracted an agreement on taking nine new chemical tankers into commercial management. The new chemical tankers will become part of the fleet of the shipping company as they are delivered from shipyards in Turkey. Thus, the tanker branch of Erria will by the end of 2010 reach 31 ships in commercial management. Since autumn 2008 the shipping company has made contract on taking 17 ships into commercial management.
The announcement of the new ships comes only a few days after the shipping company succeeded in cancelling an agreement on a contracted chemical tanker in a Turkish shipyard. However, the shipping company will continue to receive two other chemical tankers from the same shipyard.
The expansion continues, now with a fleet marked by increasingly greater weight on ships in commercial management, which will limit the risks of the shipping company.
Erria's speciality is chemical tankers that constitute 75 percent of the fleet. The last fourth is feeder ships.
Erria, which was stock registered in 2007, expects a surplus close to 13 million DKK in 2008.
