Japanese shipbuilder Oshima Shipbuilding has reportedly secured two bulkers from German shipping company Oldendorff Carriers.
Earlier this month, Oshima received an order for 100,000 dwt bulker pair from Oldendorff, several brokers have reported.
The Post-Panamax ships are slated for delivery in 2020.
Although the price details related to the newbuilding contract have not been disclosed, each of the two vessels is estimated to be worth USD 30.7 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.
The two bulkers will be named Diane Oldendorff and Dietrich Oldendorff and each of them will have a length of 235 meters and a width of 38 meters, VesselsValue’s data further suggests.
World Maritime News contacted Oldendorff for more details on the new ships, however, the company is yet to reply.
Oldendorff Carriers already has three 62,100 dwt bulkers on order at Oshima yard, with deliveries due in 2020.
