Greek ship owner Primerose Shipping has ordered two bulk carriers in China, shipbroking sources say.
The two 81,000 dwt vessels are to be built by China’s state-owned CSSC Chengxi Shipyard.
The shipbuilding contracts for two bulkers have been valued at USD 24.8 million each, and the vessels are said to be scheduled for delivery in 2019.
Primerose currently owns a fleet of eight bulk carriers, and has further four 82,000 dwt vessels on order at Yangzijiang Shipbuilding.
Earlier this month, Chengxi Shipyard secured an order for four 82,000 dwt bulk carriers from Korea Shipping Corporation, a subsidiary of Korea Line Corporation.
