On 10th February 2023, Oldendorff celebrated the namegiving of their latest Japanese Capesize newbuilding, M/V “Gina Oldendorff”. She follows 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 tdw vessels in 2021. Their very low fuel consumption will also mean lower CO2 emissions.
In October, Oldendorff received the first of twelve 82,200 tdw Kamsarmax newbuildings from Hantong Shipyard in Nantong, China, which were also ordered in 2021. They 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.
