MPC Container Ships to Buy Two More

Oslo-based boxship owner MPC Container Ships is continuing with fleet expansion efforts as it has agreed two more secondhand purchases.

The company has entered into agreements to acquire the 1,049 TEU Annika and the 1,043 TEU Antigoni, both built at Daesun Shipbuilding, South Korea, in 2008.

As informed, the total purchase price for the two vessels is USD 16.1 million.

The vessel duo is owned by Greece-based Cosmoship, VesselsValue’s data shows.

The takeover of the vessels is expected to take place in January 2018, lifting the fleet of the company to 41 vessels, MPC Container Ships said.

Last week, the company also agreed to buy three 2006-built containerships, Vilano, Cap Pasado and Cap Blanche.
