DSME nets 19,000-teu duo

DSME has secured an order for two more mega containerships from China’s Bank of Communications Financial Leasing Co (BCLC).

The twin 19,000-teu boxships take the bank’s catalogue at the South Korean shipyard to five.

DSME will deliver the latest vessels in 2016, TradeWinds understands.

They have been ordered against period contracts with Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC).
