In connection with the acquisition, TORM has secured commitment for vessel financing of up to USD 63 million from KfW and ABN AMRO respectively, which remains subject to loan documentation.
“We are pleased to expand the fleet with the addition of three MR newbuildings.

“The vessels are already fully funded by our USD 100m equity raise in January 2018 and through loan commitments from KfW and ABN AMRO,”he added.

The vessels are all fuel-efficient and high-specification product tankers that are compliant with the ballast water convention and ready forthe IMO 2020 sulfur requirements, according to the company.
