Tsuneishi gets first orders for its new TESS38 bulkers

Tokyo: An unnamed Japanese owner has come in Tsuneishi’s new TESS38 design bulkers. An unspecified number of the new 38,300 dwt ships will be built at Tsuneishi’s shipyard in Cebu in the middle of the Philippines.

The TESS38 is an upgrade of Tsuneishi’s popular TESS35 design. The shipbuilder has added 3 m in length to the old design, making it 180 m long and giving it an extra 3,000 dwt.

The ship design, with four deck cranes, is aimed at the log and steel trades in particular.
