Newbuildings

Our company has a long tradition of contracting newbuilding projects at shipyards in Europe and the Far East. Nearly 30 newbuildings have been initiated by us over the last 40 years.

Our newbuilding activities aim at the construction of vessels that comply with the newest technology in ship design and ship modelling and which have the capacity to successfully trade in the next decades. An experienced building supervision team located at the shipyard will ensure that we receive a ship of the highest quality standard.

Our present newbuilding program comprises a series of four 7,350dwt multi-purpose vessels designed for the forest product trade and for the special challenges in the Baltic Sea.

During the design development a major focus was set on the efficiency and environmental performance, so we could reduce the fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions on a minimum level compared to vessels of same type and size and surpass upcoming EEDI regulations already today.

The newbuilding projects will meet the latest technical equipment, be fitted with SCR systems (selective cathalytic reaction) for NOx reduction and prepared for shore power usage.
