Diana Shipping secures new charters with Ausca and Koch

Greek dry bulk owner Diana Shipping has secured new charters for two of its vessels.

Koch Shipping has taken 2006-built panamax bulker Artemis on charter for a period of 9-11 months at a rate of $10,150 per day. The vessel has already commenced the charter, and was previously on charter to Hong Kong’s Ausca Shipping at $12,600 per day.

Meanwhile, Ausca Shipping has taken 2010-built kamsarmax Myrsini on charter instead. The charter, which has also already commenced, is for 13-15 months at $11,500 per day. Myrsini was previously on charter with Glencore at $12,750 per day.

Diana Shipping says the two charter will generate around $7.07m based on the minimum time charter period.
