One more ship for Romeo & Co.’s fleet
NASC, the joint venture between Nova Marine Carriers and Algoma, bought from Norway-based Oslobulk the mini-bulker Sian C, renamed as Sider Venture
Nova Algoma Short-sea Carriers (NASC), the joint venture between Nova Marine Carriers of Lugano (Switzerland) and Algoma Central Corporation, based in St. Cathrines (Canada), has purchased a general cargo self trimming single-deck ship from Norwegian owners Oslobulk.
The mini-bulker Sian C has been renamed as Sider Venture and now reuniting with its sister ships. The vessel has a 13,497 dwt, is 136.40 meters long with a beam of 21.20 meters. Built in Japan in 2006, as part of a group of 6 sister vessels, she will then rejoin the 5 sister vessels already under NASC’s commercial management. “This move is more than just sentimental, however, it signifies growth for NASC, and is a further step towards the consolidation of the short-sea market” stated NASC.
The Sider Venture will become the 10th vessel trading in the Mini Grabbers Pool (MGP), a pool of grab-fitted cargo vessels controlled by NASC and operating in the Atlantic, particularly in Europe and the Caribbean.
Created in April 2017, the 50:50 joint-venture NASC focuses both company’s strengths on the global short-sea dry-bulk shipping market.
