OLDENDORFF CARRIERS reports that a few more deals were entered into in Japan, leveraging Company’s strong ties with Japanese business partners.
Earlier this year, Oldendorff ordered a 182,000 tdw eco Capesize new building at Namura Shipbuilding for delivery during the 4th quarter of 2022. It features a Mitsui-MAN B&W 6G70ME-C9.5(EGRBP) NOX Tier III main engine and a new hull form, which results in very low fuel consumption. Oldendorff’s last order in Japan was at Oshima Shipbuilding, who have delivered 2 x 100,500 tdw Post-Panamaxes and 3 x 62,600 tdw Ultramaxes to us during 2020.
Oldendorff had also bought three secondhand Post-Panamaxes from three Japanese owners, which will enter Company’s fleet between June and early July 2021 under the following new names:
