The Delfzijl-based shipping company recently ordered six multipurpose general cargo vessels at the Indian Chowgule & Company shipyard.
The energy-efficient, 4,200 dwt vessels with a cargo hold of more than 6,000 m³ are 98m long and are designed to meet the increased environmental requirements (IMO Tier III with the highest Swedish/Finnish ice class).
The delivery of the first ship has been scheduled for the last quarter of 2018. They will be added to the existing (Lady H) series in intervals of four months.
