Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Company (DSIC), a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), has won contracts from Greek owner Danaos and Germany’s Asiatic Lloyd for the construction of four to up to six 7,100 teu containerships.
Danaos has ordered two methanol-ready ships, expected to deliver in the second and third quarter of 2024. The deal includes options for two more units.
Meanwhile, Asiatic Lloyd has placed an order for a further pair of ammonia-ready units, adding to the four similar ships contracted last year for around $70m each. No price has been revealed for the latest order set to deliver in 2024.
The 255 m long boxships will be built according to Shanghai Ship Research and Design Institute (SDARI) design and meet IMO Tier 3 and EEDI Phase 3 requirements.
