Despite some media reports of more significant ordering, there is only one firm shipbuilding order to report in the drybulk sector, according to the latest Clarkson Hellas S&P Weekly Bulletin, as follows:

Dry bulk carriers
COSCO Zhoushan have announced a contract for two 64,000 dwt Ultramax with deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017 respectively. It is understood that these are the options declared by clients of Hong Kong owner KC Maritime who had signed the contracts for the two firm units in the end of last year for delivery in the fourth quarter of this year.

Tankships
Compared to dry, more activity was seen by Clarkson Hellas in tankers with clients of Navig8 Chemical Tankers contracting four firm plus four option 49,000 dwt IMO-II MRs at STX Offshore & Shipbuilding in Korea. Deliveries of the firm units are from 2016 and the vessels will be built at STX’s Jinhae facilities.

Clients of Goldwin Shipping contracted one firm plus two option 38,000 dwt IMO-II Stainless-Steel Chemical Tankers at New Hantong Shipyard with delivery of the firm vessels within the third quarter of 2016 and options later in 2017 if declared.

It is also understood by Clarkson Hellas that Suisse-Outremer Reederi A.G. declared two further options of 4,900 DWT Asphalt & Bitumen Carrier at Avic Dingheng in China, taking their total series on order to four vessels. Deliveries for those options will be in the second quarter of 2016.
