CSL also has options for the construction of two additional gearless bulk vessels for delivery during the 2014 shipping season.

It creates a competitive edge with state of the art operational and energy efficiencies. This investment in our fleet will help meet the growing needs of our customers and will ensure superior service for years to come.”

The 36,100-DWT bulkers will be Seaway max size and feature IMO Tier II compliant main engines with the latest environmental and safety systems.
