Mining company Anglo American is making a move into shipowning with an order at CSSC Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS) for two dual-fuel capsize bulkers.

It is the first time Anglo American Shipping has ordered newbuilds at China State Shipbuilding Corporation’s shipyard acting as the owner. Anglo American operates a substantial chartered in fleet but does not own the vessels

In a change to this model it has ordered a pair of 190,000 dwt bulkers, dual-powered by LNG and diesel, 300 metres length and 47.5 metres beam, which is an upgrade version of Waigaoqiao’s 187,000 dwt bulk carrier.

Last year, Anglo American and Taiwan-based shipping company U-Ming signed charter contract for four dual-fuel bulk carriers built by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding.
