Permanent Financing for First 10 Product Tankers Secured
Senior secured credit facility of $770 million with Fortis closed at delivery of first tanker.
Aker American Shipping has, concurrently with the delivery of the first Product Tanker, closed a senior secured credit facility of $770 million with Fortis as Agent, financing its long term ownership of the first 10 vessels.
The facility secures permanent financing for the first 10 product tankers and provides for an advance of $80 million per vessel. The facility refinances the $350 million facility currently in place for the first five Product Tankers that provided for an advance of $70 million per vessel. AKASA has also entered into interest rate swaps, which secure the interest rate of the new credit facility.
