Swedish based tanker shipowner Stena Bulk has announced the successful sale of the LNG carrier “Stena Blue Sky” to an undisclosed Asian buyer.

The sale of “Stena Blue Sky” follows the recent announcement that Stena Bulk had sold two LNG carriers to BW LNG.

The successful transfer of “Stena Blue Sky” has already taken place, as the vessel was delivered to the new buyers on April 18 in Singapore, Stena Bulk notes.

The LNG carrier “Stena Blue Sky” was built in 2006 by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea, and has a carrying capacity 145,000cbm of LNG.

Erik Hånell, president & chief executive of Stena Bulk, said: “We are pleased with the successful sale of Stena Blue Sky. This sale aligns with our strategic vision as we explore new avenues of growth within our fleet.”

He added that “We look forward to new opportunities for the Stena Bulk fleet and for our company. As we navigate this transition, we remain steadfast in our commitment to optimising our fleet, while simultaneously driving innovation and expansion”.
