Lomar Takes Delivery of Kambos

Chinese shipbuilder COSCO Zhoushan Shipyard Co., Ltd has delivered a 64,000 DWT bulk carrier, named Kambos, to its European buyer Lomar Shipping.

The vessel measures 199.90 meters in LOA (length of all), 32.26 meters in breadth and 18.5 meters in depth.

Kambos is a sister vessel to bulk carrier Queen Cuki delivered by COSCO in May this year.

In February 2012, Lomar inked an order with COSCO for up to six ‘Ultramax’ bulk carriers of the ‘Dolphin’ design, introduced by Chinese design institute SDARI (Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute).

The Ultramax bulk carriers have been designed to carry up to 11% more cargo than conventional Supramaxes whilst consuming around 13% less fuel.

Lomar Shipping has one more 64,000 DWT bulker slated for delivery in 2015 and three more for 2017.
