Russia’s transportation and logistics firm Amurskaya Neftebaza has placed an order for six bulk carriers with Chinese shipbuilder Yangzijiang Shipbuilding.

According to the agreement between the parties, which was unveiled on April 20, the new vessels will feature 120,000 dwt.

The units are scheduled for delivery to their owner in the second half of 2019, data provided by Asiasis show. The parties did not reveal any financial details related to the order.

In late March, the Russian company placed an order for a 4,500 cbm small clean tanker at China’s Jiangsu Dajin Heavy Industry. The unit, which is scheduled for delivery in May 2019, was priced at USD 7.1 million.

For Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, the order comes on the back of a Letter of Intent (LOI) signed for the construction of up to twenty LNG-fueled bulk carriers for Forward Maritime, a part of Arista Shipping Group.

The Kamsarmax vessels, which would feature 84,000 dwt, would join the fleet between 2020 and 2023, provided that Forward Maritime signs firm contracts for the units.
