Boxship owner Seaspan Corp said it has placed orders for six neo-panamax containerships as it continues a spending spree that began late last year.

The leading tonnage provider signed a deal with a major shipyard to provide the 15,500-teu scrubber-fitted containerships.

The order takes the tally of newbuildings ordered by Seaspan to 37 ships, excluding two 24,000-teu vessels it acquired as resales in late 2020.
