Korean-owned China-based Samjin Shipbuilding Industries is reportedly in the process of signing a newbuilding contract with Norway's Siem Car Carriers.
The owner is eyeing two plus two optional 6,500CEU PCTCs at a price tag of around $60m apiece.
Delivery is said to be in 2014 and 2015 from Samjin.
If the project is confirmed the deal would be the first newbuilding program for Siem.
Samjin is said to be offering a design that is significantly more efficient than conventional car carriers.
