Wan Hai gives up options on four boxships

Taiwanese shipping line Wan Hai Lines has announced that it has decided not to exercise options to construct four additional 2,038 teu boxships at CSSC-affiliated Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding.

In November last year, Wan Hai ordered twelve 2,038 teu boxships at the yard in addition to eight 3,036 teu boxships at Japan Marine United. Each contract included options for four additional vessels.

The company didn’t reveal the reason for the decision.

Wan Hai Lines currently operates a fleet of over 70 containerships with a total capacity of around 259,000 teu.
