The Philippines-based shipowner Fukujin Kisen K.K. has reached an agreement for the construction of a chemical and oil carrier at Vietnamese Hyundai Vinashin Shipyard, according to data provided by Clarkson Research.

Under the deal, reached on February 3, the shipbuilder is scheduled to deliver the 50,000 dwt carrier in 2018.

The financial terms agreed for the construction deal have not been disclosed.

World Maritime News contacted relevant parties for details related to the agreement.

Once delivered, the newbuilding will become a part of Fukujin Kisen’s fleet of 27 ships, mostly comprising bulk carriers.

The company currently operates 23 bulkers, two containerships and two tankers, data provided by VesselsValue shows.

Fukujin Kisen’s orderbook includes one Panamax bulk carrier, being built by the Philippines-based Tsuneishi Cebu. The 81,600 dwt bulker is scheduled to join its owner in May 2017.
