Ouhua Shipbuilding Adds Four BCs

China Navigation Company (CNCo) has confirmed an order for four additional 39,000 dwt B.Delta 37 handysize bulk carriers to be built at Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., Zhoushan, China. This latest order brings the total number of Deltamarin designed vessels ordered by CNCo to twenty including sixteen orders already placed at Chengxi Shipyard.

This order represents the continuation of the successful collaboration between CNCo and Ouhua on several newbuilding projects including eight 31,000dwt “S Class” multipurpose vessels (delivery 2013/2014) and four 22,000dwt “Chief Class” multipurpose vessels (delivery 2015) .

Ouhua has already successfully delivered 4 of the “ S Class ” multipurpose vessels to Swire Shipping, CNCo’s liner shipping division. The vessels in service are proving to be of high quality, demonstrating the shipbuilding capabilities of Ouhua.

This order follows the successful completion of the sea trials for MV Wuchang on 29 th September which was the first trial for Deltamarin’s innovative B.Delta37 eco handysize design. All 20 vessels will be deployed in CNCo’s drybulk division, Swire Bulk, and will operate on a worldwide basis.
