Taiwan’s U-Ming Marine has managed to secure a couple of prized berths at Japanese shipyard Oshima Shipbuilding.
Clarkson Research Services is reporting U-Ming has contracted for a pair of 100,000 dwt bulk carriers at Oshima. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2022. No price has been identified.
Earlier this year, U-Ming teamed with compatriot Kuang Ming Shipping and Japanese shipping major Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) to start a coal shipping joint venture with Taiwan Power Company (TPC).
