COSCO Corp. (Singapore) Ltd. has sold four of its older vessels for $34 million as part of an ongoing fleet renewal exercise and will realize a profit of about $14.2 million from the sale, the Singapore-listed Chinese shipping and ship-repair company said Tuesday.
The vessels were sold at around their assessed values to sister companies Shenzhen Ocean Shipping Co. Ltd. and COSCO International Trading Co.
COSCO Singapore also said it took delivery of M/V COS Prosperity, a new dry bulk
carrier, on Tuesday. The vessel had been due in the third quarter of 2006.
