Turkey’s Feyz Group returns to Damen for two more ships

Istanbul-based Feyz Group has returned to Dutch shipbuilder Damen for two more combination carriers.

The deal comes hot on the heels of the order for three 3,850 dwt ships, which will be built at the Damen Yichang Shipyard in China for delivery in early 2025.

The new order covers a general cargo ship from Damen’s combi freighter (CF) 5000 series with a hold capacity of 7,000 cu m and a carrying capacity of up to 5,080 dwt or 164 teu, and an additional CF 3850 unit scheduled for delivery at the end of 2024.

Feyz Group is currently renewing its fleet, which currently stands at five general cargo vessels and one small handy bulker, according to fleet register Equasis.

Commenting on the new order, Engin Aynaci, the general manager of Feyz Group, said: “Due to the positive market reaction to our recent order from Damen, we have decided not to wait and will proceed with renewing our fleet without wasting any time. With these new orders, we are enhancing the versatility of our fleet while simultaneously maintaining interchangeability and improving reliability, thanks to Damen’s standardisation philosophy.”
