The two 40,000 dwt bulk carriers are scheduled for delivered during August and October 2025, costing at $33.48 million each respectively.
The vessels are more fuel-efficient and of higher operational efficiency than the other bulk carriers of the group currently in operation, which meets the latest environmental regulations and prevailing specification requirements in the shipping industry.
The acquisition of the vessels is in line with the ongoing strategy of the group to optimise its vessel fleet by gradually phasing out its older controlled vessels and replacing them with newer vessels and expand its controlled vessel fleet, commented Seacon.
With the addition of the new vessels, the number of the group’s controlled vessels will be increase from 24 as of 30 June 2023 to 35 by the end of 2025 with an increase in the combined weight carrying capacity from approximately 1.3 million dwt to approximately 1.8 million dwt.
