With Lunar New Year Holidays now approaching, there are continued reports of new business being concluded across many of the major sectors said Clarkson Hellas in its latest weekly report. This past week, conventional ship types across the board were in the forefront.  In the dry bulk market, Frontline and STX Dalian have signed a contract for 4+4 x 181,000-dwt Capesize vessels for delivery every 3 months from July 2014. The total price reported for the four firm vessels is understood to be USD 187 million pricing each vessel at USD 46.75 million.

Norwegian owner Jebsen meanwhile is reported to have placed an order for three firm 81,000- dwt Kamsarmax vessels at the newly formed Japan Marine United (JMU) with pricing just above USD 30 million The deal is understood to include several options and be ordered on a 50/50 basis with JP Morgan. At the smaller end of the market, Nantong Hongqiang received an order for five 15,000dwt units for delivery in 2014 to a yet unknown buyer" said Clarkson Hellas.

In a separate report, shipbroker Golden Destiny noted that overall, the week closed with 43 fresh orders reported worldwide at a total deadweight of 1,451,600 tons, posting a 43 % week-on-week increase from previous week due to firm number of contacts in all main vessel segments with offshore vessels grasping the lion share. This week’s total newbuilding business is up by 139% from similar week’s closing in 2012, when 18 fresh orders had been reported, 10 for bulkers, 1 for tankers, 4 gas tankers, 2 liners and 1 passenger/cruise. In terms of invested capital, the total amount of money invested is estimated in the region of more than $922 million, 33 newbuidling deals reported at an undisclosed contract price, with a hefty amount invested in the gas tanker of $268 million, in the container of $360 million and in the car carrier segment of $202,5 million" it said.

The vessel will be built as eco friendly design and will be able to run on heavy fuel, diesel fuel or LNG, with delivery in June 2014. One more kamsarmax newbuilding came to light by Norwegian Jebsen for the construction of three 81,000-dwt vessels in the new joint venture between Universal Shipbuilding and IHI Marine United, Japan Marine United, for a price of about excess $30 million each. The contract includes several options. The vessels will be built to an advanced eco friendly design and have been ordered on a 50/50 basis with JP Morgan Global Investment Fund.

In the tanker segment, Metrostar of Greece seems to have replaced its order placed in November 2010 for four 3,600-teu containerships with a new contract for six MR tankers, including an option for four more, with delivery from end 2014. In the gas tanker segment, Evergas has placed an order for four more 37,500 cbm LNG carriers at Sinopacific’s Qidong yard for delivery in 2015 at a price believed to be in the region of $64-$70 million each, including an option for four more vessels.

The vessels will be built using Seaspan’s fuel efficient SAVER design and are already assigned to a long term fixed rate timecharter to MOL of Japan. In the liner segment, Nordana Line of Denmark has ordered four multipurpose general cargo vessels of 12,100-dwt from Chinese shipbuilder Taizhou Sanfu. The 12,100-dwt newbuildings will be built to an improved version of the same owner’s 'Great Dane' design, delivered by Sanfu in 2011. The new version features a heavy-load capability of up to 500 tonnes, from the earlier series’ 300-tonne capability. In addition, eco-friendly features have been added to this version of the 'Great Dane', which has been developed in co-operation among Nordana, the yard and Shanghai Merchant Ship Design. Delivery of the first vessel is scheduled for November 2014, with the remaining ships following in three-month intervals. All four newbuildings will be fitted with portable tweendecks" Golden Destiny concluded.
