Hansun Shipping progresses with electric-powered bulker project

Newly registered shipping company Shanghai Hansun Shipping has entered into an agreement with Shanghai Vanx Marine Tech for the design of up to twenty 5,400 dwt electric-powered bulk carriers.

The agreement is made up of firm contract for 16 vessels and two options of two additional vessels each.

The vessels will be classified by CCS while the builder of the vessels has not been revealed yet.

Early this month, Hansun entered into a framework agreement with Chinese lithium battery producer EVE Energy for the joint development of electric propulsion system for the vessels, which will be deployed for domestic river-to-ocean shipping services.
