On 10th February 2023, we celebrated the namegiving of our latest Japanese Capesize newbuilding, M/V "Gina Oldendorff". She followed her sistership "Alice Oldendorff", which was also delivered from Namura Shipbuilding in November.
Both Capesize ships will be retrofitted with "Yara" Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems in China. We ordered the two 182,000 dwt vessels in 2021. Their very low fuel consumption will also mean lower CO2 emissions.
In October, we received the first of twelve 82,200 tdw Kamsarmax newbuildings from Hantong Shipyard in Nantong, China, which were also ordered in 2021.
We resold 6 of the 12 Kamsarmax ships to another shipowner. This improved "Sdari-82k-2020" design consumes only 22 tons of fuel per day, based on a ballast speed of 14 knots and a laden speed of 12 knots.
Oldendorff Carriers sold 13 second hand ships during 2022 and early 2023 as follows:
