Oman to double fleet

Muscat: Oman is scheduled to double its fleet size over the next two years from 23 to 42 vessels, writes Ship-Technology. The country is building 19 new vessels at shipyards in Korea, Japan and China. The newbuild programme includes 13 VLCCs, four ultra-large ore carriers of 400,000dwt each and two Supramax bulk carriers of 55,000dwt. The ships, scheduled for delivery between 2010 and 2012, are expected to increase Oman's tonnage capacity to 8m dwt by 2012.  [23/09/10]
