HMD inks LPG carriers



Belgian owner Exmar has penned midsize LPG carrier newbuildings at South Korea's Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

The deal to construct up to eight 38,000-cbm vessels at South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo Dockyard materialised on Thursday.

Finance chief Miguel de Potter said the initial order will include four vessels at a cost of $50m apiece and says the transaction “may evolve” as negotiations continue in the coming weeks.

“We are very bullish on the midsize LPG segment as these vessels can transport both ammonia and LPG,” he added.

Exmar says the ships, which will begin hitting the water in the first quarter of 2014, will be designed to “stay ahead of upcoming amendments in environmental legislation” with an innovative ballast water treatment system and features that will help reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

Hellenic orders hit $1bn



Greeks continue to place newbuilding orders with bulk carriers holding the lion share of their newbuilding appetite, 62% of the total number of orders placed in the first three months of the year, Golden Destiny’s Annual Newbuilding Report shows.

Preliminary statistics data show that Greek owners, before the end of the first quarter of the year, have spent about $1 billion for 21 newbuilding contracts, 13 bulk carriers, 6 tankers and 2 gas tankers.


Overall, Greek newbuilding activity represents 7.4% of the total number of orders placed in January-March 2012, in contrast with Chinese players holding 5.3% for 15 orders in total.

Greek investors’ interest for the construction of newbuilding units remain intense in the bulk carrier segment, despite the fragile sentiment of dry market in the first quarter of the year, as the BDI hovered below the psychological barrier of 1,000 points.

However, foreign owners appear to be keener in the placement of more specialized units, LNG and offshore, which seem to be the healthiest segments in terms of growth opportunities for trade and vessel earnings. Offshore support vessels attracted 36% share of the total newbuilding activity versus 27% for bulk carriers and 17% for tankers.

During the first three months, January-March, owners have spent more than $15.6 billion for 283 newbuilding contracts, with the gas tanker segment being still in the spotlight from last year’s record activity and containers being out of the newbuilding scene.

Currently, new fuel efficient designs seem to be the key for shipyards winning some fresh orders in the already oversupplied segments, mainly bulk carriers and tankers. Overall, Greek newbuilding activity showed strong volumes of business from the beginning of 2010 till the first three quarters of 2011, with the placement of 250 orders in 2010 and 182 in 2011. The LNG segment attracted their interest from 2011 with the placement of 24 orders in contrast with only 2 orders during 2010.

Bulk carriers are still attracting most of their interest, 77 units ordered in 2011, with 2010 being the record year, 160 bulk carriers had been ordered from 28 in 2009. Apart from LNG units, intense newbuilding interest emerged also for boxship units with 46 contracts in 2011, from 17 in 2010.

Wartsila margin double-digit


Finnish marine engine maker Wartsila says its takeover of Hamworthy could boost its 2012 pre-tax profit margin to between 10% and 11%. The company also said revenue should rise by between 5% and 10%.

It bought the UK gas carrier systems company in January, paying £381m ($605m), although the net price was £326m due to Hamworthy's cash balance.


Wartsila said Hamworthy should exceed the latest analyst consensus, which indicated in October that revenue would be EUR 280m ($372m) and the operating profit margin would hit 8% for its financial year ending in March.

The company will split Hamworthy into two business units: flow and gas solutions and environmental solutions.

Yards Crisis Deepens



With global orderbook cut by 30% for the last year and newbuilding price continued decreasing for nine consecutive months, small-and-medium shipbuilders wround the world have confronted a serious management crisis.

According to Clarksons and industry sources on March 28, global newbuilding orderbook in early March stood at 349.4m dwt, declined by 7% from 375.8m dwt in the beginning of 2012.


Comparing with 499.1m dwt from the beginning 2011, orderbook has plummeted by about 30%.

Particularly, 158.8m dwt, which accounts for 45% of current orderbook, is scheduled for delivery by the end of this year. Therefore, global shipbuilders are urgently needed to secure orders.

Meanwhile, newbuilding price has been declining persistently. As of March 26, Clarkson newbuilding price index recorded 135p, down by 1p week-on-week and by 1.3p on the end of February. This almost makes certain that newbuilding price is on a downward trend for nine consecutive months.

Large-sized shipyards are going through new order drought in commercial ship sector by winning high-value vessel and offshore plants.

However, considerable number of small-and-medium yards are expected to run out of work this year. Moreover, management environment is getting worse to make profits from new orders.

JACCAR into gas & bulker



Greenship Holdings, a fully owned Singapore subsidiary of JACCAR Holdings, has established two separate entities to expand into ship-owning and operating activities in the gas and dry bulk sectors.

Greenship Holdings is aiming to own and operate advanced, fuel efficient and environmentally friendly vessels. Its original commitment, totaling 30 vessels in the gas and dry bulk sectors, with a total investment of around $900m has a secured financing structure and will go into operation in full within the next two years.

Greenship Gas, fully owned by Greenship Holdings, has 100% ownership of Danish based EVERGAS (formerly Eitzen Gas and Eitzen Ethylene Carriers). Its team of professionals handles all facets of the existing fleet of eight vessels and the 18 highly advanced vessels and options on the order book.

Already this year EVERGAS will take delivery of the first of six in the state-of-the-art fully pressurized LPG Tiger 5000 cbm series which will be commercially operated by GasChem Services and technically managed by Hartmann Schiffahrts.

As from 2013 EVERGAS will take delivery of the first in the series of 12 liquid ethylene carriers which will be added to the existing fleet of 13 vessels operated together with Solvang. All new buildings have been ordered from Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering shipyard in China.

Our modern fleet will provide our customers with reliability and cost efficiency whilst setting new standards for safe and sustainable gas transport at sea.

Greenship Bulk, wholly owned by Greenship Holdings, will manage its bulk shipping investments. Greenship Bulk invested in a first series of eight new generation Ultramax 63.000 ton deadweight ships just at the right time.

They were built in Yangzhou Dayang Shipyard, with environmentally friendly features and low consumption parameters under the direct supervision of SETAF’s technical team.

The first of these vessels “JS AMAZON” was successfully delivered on 1st March 2012 and the 2nd ship “JS COLORADO” will be delivered by the end of March 2012.

Greenship Bulk will continue to invest in the dry bulk carrier segment, at the right time, with the deep technical and commercial involvement of the team that is essential for the success of those ventures.

Greenship Holdings intends to further expand its investments in green and advanced ships while opening up equity partnership to other investors into any Greenship entities.
