Netherlands-based Longship Group has expanded its orderbook in partnership with Norwegian shipowner Wagle Chartering.

The Dutch owner said the move to build two GS Eco-Freighter 3700 ships at GS Yard in Waterhuizen continues the “strategy to renew and to optimise our fleet”.

The fuel-efficient general cargo ships feature single open-top box-shaped holds of about 181,000 cbf.
