Bulgarian shipping company Navigation Maritime Bulgare (Navibulgar) has added to its fleet Chumerna, a 2012-built bulk carrier bought from Switzerland’s ABC Maritime.
The Handysize bulker was purchased for USD 8 million in November 2016, VesselsValue’s data shows.
The 36,900 dwt Chumerna, previously known as Adfines South, was built by China’s Zhejiang Zhenghe Shipbuilding.
Featuring a length of 190 meters and a width of 28.5 meters, Chumerna has ice class 1C.
Navibulgar’s fleet is currently comprised of 30 bulkers. In addition, the firm has five Handy bulk carriers on order at Jiangsu Hongqiang shipyard in China, which are slated for delivery in 2017, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
In the next few months, Navibulgar plans to further increase its fleet by adding three ice class 1C vessels, the company said.
