Lomar informs it has declared a further three options to build new container vessels at Chinese shipyards, which brings the total number of newbuilding orders in hand to over 20 ships.

The company has declared its final two options in a total order for six 1,100 TEU container vessels from the Yangzijiang shipyard. They are designed by leading Chinese design institute SDARI (Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute) and have much improved fuel consumption and the ability to carry up to 220 reefer containers. The vessels will be named Toronto Trader, to be delivered in late 2015 and Tampa Trader, to be delivered in early 2016.

Lomar has also declared a further purchase option within its order for 2190 TEU container ships from China’s Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard, bringing its total firm orders to five. This vessel is due for delivery in 2015 and is similarly a modern, fuel-efficient design from SDARI.

Other newbuildings within the Lomar fleet include eight firm orders and two purchase options for 64,000 dwt ‘Ultramax’ bulk carriers from the COSCO Group in China.
