As disclosed by COSCO, the parties have agreed to keep the contract price confidential.

In a separate announcement, it has been informed that COSCO (Dalian) Shipyard has entered into a shipbuilding contract with COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers to build two multi-purpose pulp vessels with an option to build one other similar unit at an aggregate contract price of RMB 222 million.

The newbuilds are scheduled for delivery between the first and third quarters of 2019.

The shipbuilder added that the effectiveness of the contract is subject to the approval of the shipowner’s shareholders.

The effective dates for the first two vessels shall be no later than September 30, 2017 and the effective date for the vessel subject to the option shall be no later than December 31, 2017, the company said.
