Yangzhou Guoyu Shipbuilding inks deal for two dual-fuel boxships
Yangzhou Guoyu Shipbuilding has sealed a deal to build two LNG dual-fuel containerships for Finland’s Containerships Ltd.

The two newbuildings will be of 1,400 teu in capacity each. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The latest orders represent the fifth and sixth newbuildings made by Containerships at Guoyu Shipbuilding.

The Chinese shipyard made its first entry into the construction of containerships in the first half of 2014, and had secured its maiden orders to construct four similar sized boxships for the Finnish shipping company.
