CDB Leasing orders ultramax quartet at New Dayang Shipbuilding

CDB Leasing, the leasing unit of policy bank China Development Bank, has officially signed shipbuilding contracts with New Dayang Shipbuilding for the construction of four 63,500 dwt ultramax bulk carriers.

The order is part of a letter of intent CDB Leasing signed with the yard last November for a total of 12 ultramax newbuildings.

Two ships are expected to be delivered in August and November next year and the other two will be delivered in 2021.

CDB Leasing now owns a fleet of 40 vessels, comprising of 33 bulkers, three containerships, one tanker and three gas carriers.
