Woolim in for chemical pair

Local Korean tanker player Woolim Shipping has gone to compatriot yard, Yeunsoo Heavy Industries, for three 6,600 dwt IMO II chemical carriers. The ships will deliver in 2017 and 2018.

Yeunsoo took over Seko Heavy Industries last year and it is thought this order will be constructed at this yard. Yeunsoo is focusing on smaller chemical tonnage in the coming years.

Woolim, founded in 1983, has a number of chemical carriers ranging in size from 1,000 dwt to 8,000 dwt.
