Four Additional Bulk Carriers for China Navigation

On 15 th November, The China Navigation Company confirmed an order for four additional 39,000dwt B.Delta37 handysize bulk carriers to be built at Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (Ouhua), Zhoushan, China.

This latest order brings the total number of Deltamarin designed vessels ordered by CNCo to twenty four, with sixteen orders already placed at Chengxi Shipyard and now eight at Ouhua.

This order represents the continuation of the successful collaboration between CNCo and Ouhua on several newbuilding projects including 8 x 31,000dwt “SClass” multipurpose vessels (delivery 2013/2014) and 4 x 22,000dwt “Chief Class” multipurpose vessels (delivery 2015).

Ouhua has already successfully delivered 5 of the “S Class” multipurpose vessels to Swire Shipping, CNCo’s liner shipping division. The vessels in service are proving to be of high quality, demonstrating the shipbuilding capabilities of Ouhua. Tim Blackburn, CNCo’s Managing Director commented “CNCo is very pleased to be strengthening our partnership with Ouhua and we look forward to collaborating again on the B.Delta37 project.

This order follows the successful completion of the sea trials for MV Wuchang and MV Wuchow. All 24 B.Delta37s will be deployed in CNCo’s dry bulk division, Swire Bulk, and will operate on a worldwide basis.
