Talca: De Nadai Reefer ransomed
Pirates left the 11,000-tonne refrigerated cargo vessel MV Talca IMO 8616324 after a ransom was paid.
Its UK-based operator, London Ship Managers, had no comment to make on the matter at present. Its beneficial owner is unknown but its nominal owner is Arabian Reefers of the British Virgin Islands. In 1999 Safmarine sold most of its reefer fleet and it's shares in LSM to its partner, the De Nadai Group. So today London Ship Managers Limited is a wholly owned company of the De Nadai Group of Padua in Italy.
