Baltic Bright chartered to Holmen Paper for 2022-2023

We have in January 2021 agreed to buy the Swedish roro vessel Baltic Bright with delivery in Landskrona, Sweden, in July after 25-year class renewal and installation of ballast water treatment system.


The vessel is presently on time-charter to UPM-Kymmene, trading between ports in Finland and Spain/Germany. The contract with UPM will continue until end December 2021.


As from January 2022 she will be time-chartered to Holmen Paper in Norrköping for a two year period 2022-2023. The vessel will be employed in Holmen liner service between ports in Sweden and UK/Continent. The cargoes will mostly be paper products.


For us a contract with stock-listed Holmen is an important step to guarantee the long term employment of the vessel and crew.


Baltic Bright is built in Sweden 1996 to ABS class.

With the purchase of Baltic Bright we will add to our fleet a well maintained vessel that has just passed her 25-year class renewal and has a ballast water treatment system installed. The vessel can therefore easily trade for another 10 years.
