V.Ships’ Shanghai office will provide technical management for four 64,000 dwt Ultramax bulk carriers, which are currently under construction.
The vessels, being built at China Shipping Industry’s shipyard in Jiangsu, are scheduled to be handed over to their owner over the next year.
“We are honoured to be able to provide MSFL with our ship management expertise and look forward to establishing a long and prosperous relationship with them,” Alexandre Bilokon, general manager, V.Ships Shanghai, said.
“Our local management team is supported by a global network across V.Group and this provides MSFL with a committed and passionate team to help them achieve their business goals,” Bilokon added.
