VIDEO: Clipper Takes Over Handysize Duo

Denmark’s Clipper Group has taken over two of four 32,000 dwt Handysize bulk carriers bought from its compatriot D/S Norden in June this year.

The two vessels, to be named Clipper Kastoria (ex. Nord Hong Kong) and Clipper Panorama (ex. Nord Vancouver), have been taken over by the group’s internal technical management, Clipper Fleet Management, and dry docked at Besiktas Shipyard in Turkey.

The ships were being docked one after the other, undergoing painting and maintenance works.

According to Erik Carlsen, Head of Clipper Fleet Management, Clipper Kastoria is expected to start trading soon, while Clipper Panorama was dry docked on August 18.

The two remaining vessels to be delivered to Clipper include Nord Houston and Nord London.

The four bulkers were built in 2011 at Chinese Jiangmen Nanyang Shipyard (JNS). They feature logs and grabs fitted and will enter the Clipper Logger Pool.
