Dry Bulkcarriers, Shipbuilding and Shipyards — By on August 26, 2015 at 9:05 AM

SAM_4749_2250x1440Clipper Group is pleased to announce that it will take delivery of two SDARI64 newbuilding bulk carriers during the coming months from Sainty Shipbuilding in Yangzhou, China. The vessels, to be named Clipper Kalavryta and Clipper Kythira, were purchased as resales and will be technically and commercially managed by Clipper. 

The SDARI64s are next generation eco bulk carriers and designed to improve overall vessel performance. These particular vessels will in addition be delivered with special cranes with an above the average lifting capacity and grab volume. Both vessels are also equipped with the ballast water treatment system Electro Cleen System to meet new requirements and thus preventing spreading of invasive species between oceans.

The delivery of these 64, 000 dwt vessels supports our strategy, namely to grow our fleet in the handysize, supramax and ultramax segments, with modern vessels less than 4 years old in average. Following the delivery of Clipper Kalavryta and Clipper Kythira, our ultramax fleet will count 14 ships built in years 2013 to 2015.
