Four new bulkers for Oldendorff

Four new bulkers for Oldendorff

(Posted on 21/01/20)

A rare event is planned for Japan in March 2020: Four newbuildings out of five, which are currently under construction at Oshima in Japan, will be christened within just two hours on 10th March 2020:

100,000 tdw “Dietrich Oldendorff”; 62,500 tdw “Beate Oldendorff”; 62,500 tdw “Benjamin Oldendorff”; 62,500 tdw “Britta Oldendorff”

Sponsors will be Oldendorff’s chairman’s wife, Beate Oldendorff, who will christen her namesake, as well as all three daughters Lucy, Linda and Lily, who will christen the other vessels. The four ships will all deliver within a few weeks between mid March and mid April 2020, whereas the fifth vessel, MV “Diane Oldendorff” (100,000 tdw Post-panamax) will be named later by the wife of one of Oldendorff’s valued cargo clients and will leave the yard in June.

The two 100,000 tdw Post-panamax vessels (D-class) will be of a new design, currently representing the most economical hull form for this size class, featuring a very low fuel consumption, whereas the three craned 62,500 tonners are of the popular Oshima-62k design with many upgrades like Co2 fittings and a stronger tanktop. All five ships are equipped with “Yara” Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems and “Techcross” Ballast Water Treatment Systems.

With this event, Oldendorff is celebrating decades of close cooperation with Japanese shipyards. Oshima is well known for its super-eco bulk carrier designs.
