Oldendorff Carriers has returned to Jiangsu New Hantong Ship Heavy Industry for a series of kamsarmax bulkers.

The German company has commissioned three firm conventionally fuelled 82,000-dwt newbuildings from the Chinese shipbuilder to be delivered in 2025. The deal includes two sets of options for three vessels.

The shipowner is rebuilding its orderbook at Jiangsu New Hantong, having sold six of the 12 newbuildings it ordered there in the past two years.
