BW VLCC

BW has been in crude oil transportation sector for over 70 years, starting when Mr Sigval Bergesen d.y. established Sig. Bergesen d.y. & Co, a tanker business in Stavanger, Norway. The World-Wide Shipping legacy of the company entered the tanker business with the purchase of a second-hand 23,360 DWT tanker renamed World Oriental in the early 1960s and by the late 1970s, World-Wide Shipping owned the largest fleet of Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) in the world. At BW, we enjoy strong customer relations with oil majors, national and international oil companies as well as traders. We work hard to achieve consistently high standards of operations over the years, and are pleased to see this recognised, most importantly in the repeat business of our customers.

In April 2017, the BW VLCC fleet was committed for sale to DHT Holdings. Transition was completed in June 2017 and BW is a significant shareholder in DHT with a 33.5% holding.
