Japanese bulker specialist Oshima Shipbuilding has won an order from compatriot Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) for three 56,000 dwt handymaxes.
The ships will deliver in 2020. No price has been mentioned for the trio.
The order marks MOL’s start of rejuvenating its smaller bulker tonnage. As one of the world’s largest bulker owners, MOL’s ordering in this department has tended to focus on larger tonnage in recent years.
