Emanuele Lauro-led Scorpio Bulkers has announced the sale of another five kamsarmax bulkers, and has now sold a total of 13 bulkers since announcing its move into the offshore wind sector in August.
Scorpio has agreed deals with two parties for the 2017-built kamsarmaxes SBI Parapara, SBI Jive, SBI Swing and SBI Mazurka and the 2016-built kamsarmax SBI Reggae.
Scorpio will pocket $101.5m from the sales, with deliveries expected to take place in the first half of 2021. VesselsValue places a total value of $99.02m on the six ships.
Lauro told Maritime CEO in an interview last month that the decision to pivot from dry bulk was taken as dry bulk was a sector it could not dominate, unlike wind installation or the product tanker sector where it has led consolidation in recent years.
