Singapore-based dry bulk owner and operator Berge Bulk has added to its fleet two Capesize newbuildings, Berge Sarstein and Berge Cho Oyu.

The 182,000 dwt Berge Sarstein was delivered to the company on March 1. The ship will make its maiden voyage to Newcastle, Australia, from where it will transport coal to Map Ta Phut in Thailand.

Built by the Imabari Group in Japan, Berge Sarstein features a length of 292 meters and a width of 45 meters.

The bulker is among the first ships in Berge Bulk’s fleet to be equipped with a chemical-type ballast water treatment system, according to the firm.

The second vessel was handed over to Berge Bulk on the same day.

The 262,000 dwt Berge Cho Oyu is the third in a series of four very large ore carriers (VLOCs) built at GSI Long Xue Shipyard in Guangzhou, China.

Similar to its sister vessels, Berge Cho Oyu, which has a length of 327 meters and a width of 57 meters, will operate on the routes between Australia and China.

Berge Cho Oyu is also among the fist bulkers in the firm’s fleet having a chemical-type ballast water treatment system.

As of March 2, Berge Bulk’s fleet is comprised of 54 vessels with an aggregate tonnage of 11.1 million tons.
