Dalian: Singapore’s IMC has placed an order for four 50,000 dwt MR product tankers at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co.
The ships are destined for IMC’s subsidiary Aurora Tankers, a fleet of bright orange hulled ships plying intra-Asia trades. The vessels will deliver in 2016.
IMC has held off ordering new product tankers for around seven years and is now kicking off a fleet renewal programme.
DSIC, one of China’s busiest yards, has filled out all its available building slots through to the second quarter of 2016. [07/10/13]
