Multipurpose vessel owner and operator dship Carriers, part of Germany’s deugro Group, has purchased two F-500 newbuilds from China’s Taizhou Sanfu Shipbuilding.

As informed, the order is part of the company’s fleet expansion program initiated earlier this year.

“Apart from this, dship Carriers is looking at further purchase opportunities on the new build and second-hand tonnage markets in order to continue its fleet expansion” dship Carriers said.

The delivery of the first vessel is expected by November 2018, while the second vessel is due to join the dship Carriers’ fleet in the first quarter of 2019.

The F-500 vessel type belongs to the new generation of economic multi-purpose vessels, which have been specially developed to reduce fuel consumption and to increase stowage flexibility, according to dship Carriers.

With a combined lifting capacity of 500 metric tons, the ships will be able to handle heavy and lengthy project cargo units. The second hold, with a length of over 75 meters, allows for the loading of extremely long cargo under deck, the company added.
