Norwegian containership owner MPC Container Ships has agreed more second-hand vessel acquisitions, raising its fleet to 39 ships.

Under the latest agreements, the company said it would purchase three containerships built in 2006 at Germany’s shipyard Aker MTW Werft.

The ships in question are the 2,742 TEU Vilano, Cap Pasado and Cap Blanche, which would be renamed to AS Cleopatra, AS Christiania and AS Carlotta, respectively. According to data provided by VesselsValue, the boxships were bought from German shipowner Harmstorf Reederei.

MPC Container Ships informed that the vessels, which were purchased for an amount of USD 31.9 million, are scheduled to join the company’s fleet before year end.

These transactions were unveiled only weeks after the shipowner entered into a commitment to acquire a fleet of feeder container vessels for a purchase price of USD 130 million on November 24.

In late November the company closed a private placement raising a total of USD 175 million. At the time MPC Container Ships said that it plans to use the funds “to pursue future investments in container vessels and general corporate purposes.”
