Swiss-based Nova Marine Carriers is embarking upon an ambitious fleet investment plan which has seen the company sign a construction deal for 18 bulkers in China.

Namely, the company has placed an order for six 8,000 dwt and 12 6,000 bulk carriers at Chinese Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding.

As disclosed by the shipbuilder, the design of the new bulkers allows for improved energy-saving and operating efficiency.

Nova Marine Carriers has a ten-year old cooperation with Xinle Shipbuilding during which it has ordered the construction of over 30 ships at the yard.

The company has 27 live vessels, four bulkers and 23 small dry ships, according to the data from VesselsValue, as well as three second-hand Handysize bulkers set to be delivered. In addition, the company has stake in four MPP vessels via joint ventures with Carisbrooke Shipping and Algoma Central.
