Shanghai: An unidentified German owner has confirmed orders for four plus four 12,500 dwt multipurpose ships at Jiangxi Jiangzhou Union Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of China Ocean Shipbuilding Industry Group. The four options are expected to be exercised next month with the owner also tipped to add an extra four into the shopping basket.
The orders mean the yard is kept fully busy throughout 2014.
Officials from Jiangzhou Union declined to comment to SinoShip News on the identity of the shipowner. [29/01/14]
