Norwegian investor Harald Moraeus-Hanssen has teamed up with co-investors to place an order for two ultramax bulkers at New Dayang Shipbuilding in China.

Moraeus-Hanssen confirmed to TradeWinds that his company Uthalden has placed an order for 63,000-dwt bulkers.

They are set for delivery at the end of 2022 and in 2023, indicating that the order may have been forged some time ago.
