Reederei Nord makes Guangzhou shipyard good for feeders

GERMANY's Reederei Nord has placed an order for two firm 1,930-TEU containerships at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard for an undisclosed price.

The vessels are to be delivered in 2025 and the order comes with options for two more vessels, reports Singapore's Splash 247.

According to Maersk Broker, a number of owners have subsequently approached the CSSC-affiliated yard for a series of 2,800-TEU and 4,000-TEU methanol dual-fuel vessels attracted by the comparatively early delivery slots.
