Taiwan’s Wisdom Marine Group has ordered handysize bulk carriers at a shipyard in Japan.

The bulker owner has struck a newbuilding contract with Namura Shipbuilding for two 40,000-dwt newbuildings to be delivered in 2026.

A company official confirmed the newbuilding contract when contacted by TradeWinds.

Wisdom Marine said the 40,000-dwt bulk carriers will run on conventional marine fuel, costing $33m per ship.
