Greek container ship orders at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) have been coming in thick and fast.

A few days after US-listed Euroseas announced an $85m order for two 2,800-teu newbuildings at HMD, market sources in Athens and Singapore said that Greek peer Tsakos has pencilled in an even bigger deal for similar ships.

The Tsakos group is ordering four 2,800-teu ships at the South Korean yard, bringing its total orderbook of such vessels there to six.
