The M.V. Thor Horizon vessel was sold for just over US$5.3 million (approximately Baht 175 258 716).
The vessel was sold to a company that is not a connected person of the company by Thoresen Shipping Singapore Pte. Ltd (TSS), a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.

According to Thoresen, the sale of M.V. Thor Horizon “is in line with prevailing dry bulk shipping conditions, in which older vessels become less competitive and less able to meet operating costs”.
