Wilson takes ownership of Wilson Amsterdam
Norwegian shortsea shipping company, Wilson, has continued its fleet expansion program as it takes another general cargo vessel under its ownership. The company informed that the latest vessel it will now own and manage is Wilson Amsterdam.
The company noted that despite the current environment it has taken over the vessel with a carrying capacity of 3603 deadweight tonnage (DWT), and an overall length of 88,3 meters and a width of 14,4 meters.
The vessel is now preparing for trade under Wilson Shipowning, the company informed in a brief statement.
The acquisition of the Wilson Liverpool follows the company’s purchase of the Wilson Aviles at the end of January, and a previous acquisition of eleven general cargo vessels from Arkon. The 3,600-dwt Wilson Amsterdam is a general cargo vessel built in 2009. The vessel is equipped for containers transport and is strengthened for heavy cargo.
