Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K Lines (MOL) has ordered construction of two 240,000 dwt bulkers at compatriot Imabari Shipbuilding, Intermodal said in its weekly report.

Delivery dates and shipbuilding prices of the Capesize duo have not been disclosed.

This is the second bulker order the company has been tied to this year. Namely, MOL ordered two Panamaxes back in March from Chinese shipbuilder Jiangsu New Yangzijiang, paying USD 26.5 million per unit.

The newbuilding pair is scheduled for delivery in 2019.

The company has 71 bulkers in its fleet, based on the data from VesselsValue, with Capesizes dominating the fleet with 20 units.

Intermodal reported three more bulker contracts for last week, scored by Chinese shipbuilders.

CSIC Haijing reportedly booked two Kamsarmaxes at Tianjin Xingang, Turkish Akmar Shipping ordered two 61,000 dwt bulkers at DACKS, and Wuhu Shipyard secured an order for two 64,000 dwt bulkers from Chinese owner Shishi Dingxin. As disclosed, all six newbuildings are expected for delivery in 2020.
