Funds advised by Triton ("Triton") today announced the sale of Nordic Tankers A/S (“Nordic Tankers”) to MOL Chemical Tankers Pte. Ltd. (“MOLCT”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (“MOL”), which is one of the largest shipping companies in the world and listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

Nordic Tankers is a leading chemical tanker company, mainly operating in trade lanes in the Americas, trans-Atlantic and Europe. Triton acquired the company in 2012 and has since strengthened it through initiatives such as recruiting a new management team, investing in new vessels and participating in consolidation through the Crystal Nordic JV, which was sold separately last year."

We would like to thank the management team, the employees and all other stakeholders for their contributions to Nordic Tankers’ development during Triton’s ownership. We view this as an appropriate time for a long term industrial owner to continue developing the company further" says Peder Prahl, Director of the General Partner to the Triton fund.
