Our history


Following a series of purchases, in 2018 BW Group became the largest shareholder in Hafnia Tankers. In consultation and agreement with the other shareholders about the future strategy, both companies worked towards the goal of combining two strong entities to become the top product tanker company in the world. BW Tankers and Hafnia Tankers officially merged on 14 January 2019 and Hafnia is listed on the Norwegian OTC market following the delisting of Hafnia Tankers. Hafnia is led by CEO Mikael Skov, CFO Perry Van Echtelt, and a team of dedicated professionals based in Singapore, Denmark and USA.


Hafnia Tankers

Tankers Inc. started business operations in 2010 with the goal of acquiring and operating high quality product tankers. The company was formed by individuals from the former top management team of the international shipping business TORM A/S and institutional shareholders including Barclays Natural Resource Investments and Castel AS.

In 2013, the current organizational structure and operating model were created through a series of transactions that included renaming the company Hafnia Tankers, the acquisition of 10 MR tankers from J. Lauritzen, an equity interest in Hafnia Management A/S and an equity interest in BTS Tanker Partners Limited that owns seven SR tankers and two LR1 tankers.


BW Tankers

BW Tankers is a joint venture formed in 2014 by BW Group and PAG (Pacific Alliance Group) with a fleet of more than 50 product tankers in the LR2, LR1 and MR segments, including newbuildings. The company has a global presence with offices in Singapore, Copenhagen and Houston. BW Tankers is part of BW Group, a shipping company that has been involved in oil and gas transportation, floating gas infrastructure, environmental technologies and deep-water production for over 80 years.

Our vision is to be the global market-leading product tanker company.
We aim to achieve this through our highly-skilled team of employees, our great assets, strong balance sheet­ and the support of BW group. Our strong values are the foundation that supports this goal.
