Accused shadow fleet aframax sold for recycling for the second time


"… The vessel, which at the time of its sale was managed by Global Tech Marine Services of Dubai, was reported back then to have been sold on an as-is basis in Singapore for $500 per ldt, or $8.2m That deal failed, according to recycling sector sources who believe the cash buyer got cold feet as the vessel, originally built as Sovcomflot’s Moscow University, had been accused by pressure group United Against Nuclear Iran as being a regular transporter of sanctioned Russian crude oil. Since then the ship has been languishing at anchor in the South China Sea just outside Malaysian territorial waters."
