Maersk Tankers will sell off a part of the formerly Swedish-owned company Broström.
“We are selling off the “small” part, which is part of Broström Western Europe. We are in talks with a potential buyer, which we announced to our employees a week ago, but we have not revealed it externally yet, since the contract has not been signed,” says CEO of Maersk Tankers Hanne B. Sørensen to ShippingWatch.
Sørensen expects the deal to be in place soon. The disposal corresponds to a 1.7 percent share of Maersk Tankers’ total invested capital.
Ships from the smallest tanker ship segment, which sail in North-Western Europe, will be sold off.
