Oldendorff Carriers Pushing Forward With Its Fleet Expansion


Oldendorff Carriers is pushing forwards with its fleet expansion efforts, having revealed a fresh round of business deals with Japanese partners, says a press release published on their website.

Oldendorff’s acquisitions

Earlier this year, Oldendorff ordered a 182,000 dwt eco Capesize newbuilding at Namura Shipbuilding scheduled for delivery during the 4th quarter of 2022.

As informed, the vessel will feature a Mitsui-MAN B&W 6G70ME-C9.5(EGRBP) NOX Tier III main engine and a new hull form, which can result in a very low fuel consumption.

What is more, the company also bought three second-hand Post-Panamax ships, scheduled for delivery between June and July 2021.

Two of them, Cedric and Claas Oldendorff bulit in 2011 and 2013 respectively, are 96,000 dwt Post-Panamaxes, while the third one, Clivia Oldendorff built in 2013, features 99,000 dwt.

The deals are being announced just a month after Oldendorff revealed an order for two 61,300 dwt Ultramax newbuildings and acquired two 93,000 dwt Post-Panamaxes.

The newbuilds are of the Kawasaki eco design, of which the company had previously built nine units at DACKS and sister yard NACKS.
