Diana Containerships brings panamax out of layup for OOCL charter

Greek owner Diana Containerships is reactivating 2005-built panamax containership Pamina having sealed a 7- to 12-month time charter contract with Hong Kong’s Orient Overseas Container Line.

The 5,042 teu Pamina, which has been laid up in Malaysia since October 2016, will commence its new charter contract on September 13 at a rate of $9,500 per day. The contract will generate around $2m of gross revenue based on the minimum charter period.

Diana Containerships still has one vessel in its fleet that remains unfixed, the 2006-built New Jersey which was laid up in Malaysia at the same time as the Pamina.
