The contracts consist of six LNG carriers and eight oil/chemical tankers including 50,000 tonnes-class MR tankers, 75,000 tonnes-class LR1 tankers and 40,000 cu m LPG carriers.
Newbuilding orders as whole have been dominated by the container and gas shipping sectors over the last two years, however, there are now also a growing number of crude and product tanker contracts being placed.
As the end of the first nine months, Yangzijiang Shipbuilding has delivered 42 vessels, accounting for 74% of the company’s annual vessel delivery target. The company’s orderbook is at an all-time high of $14.8 billion, a strong earnings visibility up until middle 2027.
Vessels with a clean energy component such as dual-fuel account for around 58% of the total outstanding orderbook value of Yangzijiang.
