Rickmers-Linie, Hamburg, signed a long-term chartering agreement with Samudera Indonesia, Jakarta, securing additional modern capacity to complement its existing fleet deployed on its Middle East and India service.
The two multipurpose vessels chartered by Rickmers are the 8,900 dwt Sinar Kudus and 9,100 dwt Ardhianto, built in Japan in 1994 and 1999 respectively. Both ships have box-shaped holds and ‘tweendecks. Shipboard cranes enable Sinar Kudus to lift individual pieces of cargo weighing up to 60 tonnes and Ardhianto 50 tonnes.
The first vessel to load for Rickmers under this new charter agreement will
be Sinar Kudus in late August.
