Greek dry bulk owner Diana Shipping has entered into a time charter contract with Japan’s Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) for 2015-built capesize bulker New Orleans.
The charter commenced on December 3, and is at a rate of $15,500 per day through to between January 25, 2022 and March 25, 2022. The vessel was previously on charter to Cargill at $15,000 per day.
Diana says the deal will generate around $6.37m based on the minimum time charter period.
Earlier in the month, Diana Shipping fixed 2006-built panamax bulker Artemis to Glencore Agriculture.
