KCC says the contract has been extended for 12 months, commencing from July 1. The COA covers the capacity of 1 to 1.5 of the company’s specialised CABU combination carriers for the period.
The new contract takes KCC’s total fixed-rate tanker market coverage to around 60% for the second half of 2020 and around 20% for the first half of 2021.
KCC did not reveal the client for the COA, but does currently have a seperate long-term COA for the shipment of caustic soda to Worsley Alumina in Western Australia with Singapore’s South32.
