Norvic Shipping expands fleet with Japanese ultramax

Bulker operator Norvic Shipping is bolstering its fleet with a delivery of an energy-efficient Japanese ultramax newbuild taken on a long-term charter from Fujimaru Kaiun.

The 64,000 dwt ship has been delivered from Imabari Shipyard and renamed
Norvic Copenhagen.

Commenting on the acquisition, AJ Rahman, hairman and CEO of Norvic Shipping, said: “Acquiring dry-bulk vessels on lengthy charters is part of Norvic’s strategy to expand our long-term fleet, ensuring we meet increased demand from our customers for efficient ships,” adding: “Alongside building our own modern fleet, we work with our network of vessel owners to provide customers with choices around how they can meet their ambitions, including access to ships with a higher CCI/EEXI rating, or, over time, those that can use alternative fuels.”

The ship is the first of three energy-efficient units Norvic will add to its fleet this year, with a pair of 40,000 dwt handies still to come from Onomichi Shipyard in Japan.
