Oldendorff converts bulker into transloader

German carrier Oldendorff has contracted Chinese yard CSSC Chengxi Shipyard to convert its 88,266dwt post panamax bulk carrier Tete Oldendorff into a transloader.

The conversion is expected to be completed in the summer of 2017 and the vessel will be renamed Anna Oldendorff.

After conversion, the vessel is going to replace the E. Oldendorff, and join the fleet of Oldendorff Carriers Transshipment in the company’s Arabian Gulf transhipment operations.

Under long-term COA deals, Oldendorff transports iron ore from Brazil, Canada and Norway in capesize vessels to an anchorage offshore Abu Dhabi. The transloaders will be used to unload the vessels.

In addition, Oldendorff Carriers also signed a contract with Chengxi Shipyard to install side mounted cranes on the panamax vessel Trina Oldendorff.
