Eagle Bulk Adds Hong Kong Eagle to Fleet
Eagle Bulk Shipping (EBS), the US-based fully integrated shipowner-operator engaged in the global transportation of drybulk commodities, announced that is has taken delivery of the sixth and final Ultramax drybulk vessel it agreed to acquire in July.
The ship, which has been renamed the M/V Hong Kong Eagle, is a 2016-built, high specification SDARI-64 Ultramax vessel built at Jiangsu Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., said the owner-operator within the Supramax / Ultramax segment.
Gary Vogel, Eagle Bulk’s CEO, commented, “We are pleased to have successfully completed our latest round of vessel acquisitions. With a current fleet of 50 Supramax / Ultramax ships, 41 of which will be fitted with exhaust gas cleanings systems, or “scrubbers,” we believe Eagle is well-positioned for IMO 2020 and the year ahead.”
EBS took delivery of the fifth of six Ultramax drybulk vessels it has recently agreed to acquire.
The ship, which has been renamed the M/V Shanghai Eagle, is a 2016-built, high specification SDARI-64 Ultramax vessel built at Jiangsu Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.
