(Posted on 02/11/21)
Oldendorff Carriers have revealed that this summer the company signed another two batches of newbuilding contracts for a series of eco Kamsarmaxes with HANTONG Shipyard. The orders are for five firm vessels and Seven options. The options are likely to be declared during Q1 of 2022, which would mean that Oldendorff will have built a total of 31 vessels at Hantong between 2016 and 2023, comprised of 7 Newcastlemaxes and 24 Kamsarmaxes.
The latest orders are for the new Sdari-82 (2020) design, which features an improved hull form for an even lower consumption and a better light running margin (LRM) for the propeller.
