Taiwan Navigation orders two kamsarmaxes at Oshima

Taiwanese bulker owner Taiwan Navigation continues to optimise its fleet, having signed newbuilding contracts with Japan’s Oshima Shipbuilding for the construction of two 81,600 dwt kamsarmax bulk carriers.

Delivery of the two ships are expected in 2022 and the total price is $66.22m.

Last month, Taiwan Navigation placed orders at Namura Shipbuilding for two 80,000 dwt bulkers.

The company said the eco-friendly ships will gradually phase out the older tonnage in the fleet and it will have a fleet with an average age below six years old by 2022.

Taiwan Navigation currently operates a fleet of 20 bulk carriers with another six on order.
