The transactions are set to increase Team Tankers’ total fleet from 37 to 52 vessels.

In addition, the company previously completed the purchase of a medium range (MR) tanker, Tosca, last month.

The latest deals are subject to terms and conditions set out in the respective agreements and are expected to be completed by 6 April.

"Laurin Shipping trades under the Laurin Maritime brand and primarily operates a fleet of 15 MR tankers with capacities ranging between 45,000dwt and 50,000dwt."

Team Tankers CEO Hans Feringa said: “We have communicated to the market the need for consolidation in the chemical tanker industry.

“As a first step towards further consolidation, we are pleased to announce this combination with Laurin Shipping and Anglo-Atlantic.

“Team Tankers will benefit greatly from Laurin Shipping’s deep relationships, years of experience and Anglo-Atlantic’s contracted cargo coverage.”

The acquisition is slated to grant Team Tankers access to Laurin Shipping’s in-house technical management expertise, which is expected to lead to improvements regarding the operational control of the company’s fleet.
