Norway-based Grieg Maritime has exercised option for two ammonia-ready open hatch bulk carriers at CSSC Huangpu Wenchong shipyard.

The option was part of the contract signed in May this year with CSSC Huangpu Wenchong’s Longxue yard as part of a contract that included two firm plus two optional 82,300 dwt open hatch vessels scheduled for delivery in 2026.

With a carrying capacity of over 82,000 dwt, the new ships will be the largest vessels in the Grieg Maritime fleet.

The ship is ideally suited for the G2 Ocean pulp trade with eight holds and four electro-hydraulic swing cranes with an individual capacity of 75 tonnes. When lifting in tandem, the cranes can handle cargo of up to 105 tonnes. Internally, the vessels have been dubbed “PulpMax”, according to Grieg.

All ships will be DNV classed and have the Norwegian flag.
