Taiwanese container shipping company Wan Hai Lines has placed an order for up to twelve 1,900 TEU containerships with two shipbuilders.

Japan Marine United has been chosen to build six firm plus two optional units, while CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding has been entrusted with building four firm containerships, with an option to build two more, data from Asiasis shows.

As disclosed, the ships will be built in accordance with IMO’s Tier II specifications and are set for delivery in 2020.

The order is being reported one year after Wan Hai Lines scrapped a shipbuilding contract for eight 1,900 TEU feeder vessels, ordered from Japanese shipbuilder Naikai Zosen. The feeders were scheduled to join the company’s fleet in 2018.

The deal was cancelled due to changes in newbuilding rules and environmental regulations, Wan Hai explained.

At the time of the contract signing, Wan Hai said that the order was worth between USD 212 million and USD 326 million.
