Newbuilding Quartet Set to Join Alpha Bulkers’ Fleet in 2018

Four new Kamsarmax bulk carriers will be handed over to Athens-based ship manager Alpha Bulkers this year.

The company said on its website that it is overseeing the construction of four eco newbuildings, featuring 81,800 in dwt each.

Two ships from the unnamed quartet are flagged in Greece while the remaining two will fly the flag of the Marshall Islands.

The four Kamsarmaxes were purchased from Chinese Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings, according to the latest data provided by Asiasis.

Nevertheless, the financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

World Maritime News is yet to received a comment from Alpha Bulkers on the reported purchase.

The ship management company has a fleet of thirty-one large bulk carriers, ranging from Panamax to Capesize vessels.
