OOCL delays Hudong pair

Hong Kong: Hong Kong liner giant Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) has decided to delay the delivery of two 8,888 teu ships that are due to be built at Shanghai’s Hudong-Zhonghua. OOCL contracted for the pair back in 2007, paying $120.7m per unit. The ships were due to deliver at the start of 2013, but this has now been shifted to the end of 2014, and will also mean the engines will be modified to be more eco-friendly.  [27/08/12]
