Greece’s Consolidated Marine Management (CMM) has placed orders for two 50,000-dwt chemical/product tankers at Hyundai Vinashin in Vietnam, Splash can reveal.
The two 183.3-metre-long tankers will be delivered respectively in September and December 2017.
A spokesman for CMM told Splash today he couldn’t comment publically on the order and declined to reveal the contract price.
The new vessels bring CMM’s newbuildings up to a total of eight vessels, and sit alongside the two 50,000-dwt MR2 chemical/product tankers ordered from Hyundai Mipo in October for $35.5m each.
In March this year, the ship management company, which is a unit of Latsis-owned Latsco Shipping, ordered two 60,000-cbm LPG carriers from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for delivery in mid-2016.
Two 84,000-cbm VLGCs are also set to arrive soon from HHI. Hellas Gladiator is listed by shipping databases as “launched” and is scheduled for delivery this year. The other VLGC will follow next year.
