Wisdom Marine sets aside $22m to buy new bulk carrier
Taiwan’s Wisdom Marine has set aside $22m to purchase one 37,000 dwt dry bulk carrier at Japan’s Onomichi Dockyard.

The board of the company has approved the purchase of the newbuilding, according to a stock exchange filing made by Wisdom Marine.

Last month, the dry bulk shipowner took delivery of a new 55,000 dwt bulker from another Japanese yard Kawasaki Heavy Industries.

At the end of last year, Wisdom Marine boasted a fleet of 94 ships, and it is aming to expand its fleet to 100 by the end of the first quarter of 2015.
