Hong Kong owner Goldwin Shipping has placed an order at CSSC Chengxi Shipyard for the construction of two 55,600 dwt chemical tankers. The shipbuilding contract also includes options to order additional two vessels.
The vessels will be classified by Lloyd’s Register and will be operated by Goldwin’s affiliate company Kerrison International Shipping. Other contract details were not disclosed.
The order follows Goldwin ordering a 38,800 dwt chemical tanker with three options at Nantong Xiangyu, formerly known as Nantong Mingde in April this year.
Low profile Goldwin is owned by the Cheng family from China and headed by Cheng Hui. The company currently has four vessels in its fleet, comprised of three bulkers and one chemical tanker.
