Three newbuilds for India's Tomini Shipping
The Delhi (India)-headquartered company Tomini Shipping greeted the New Year by naming three ultramax carriers, the “Tomini Entity” (63,500 dwt), “Tomini Felicity” (63,300 DWT) and “Tomini Tenacity” (63,601 dwt). The three units were delivered on 7 January 2020.
The naming ceremony was held at the Cosco Shipping Hudong Shipyard, Shanghai, China. Tomini’s newbuilding programme seeks to replenish the fleet with new and eco-friendly ships. These additions are in line with their fleet renewal strategy bringing the fleet size to 12 with an average age of three years.
“We specialise in selected dry bulk vessel segments namely ultramaxes; we have confidence in the sector and remain committed to growing a diverse fleet,” Nitin Mehta, CEO, commented. Tomini Shipping has been in the market as a ship owner and operator for more than 65 years, whilst commercial management is handled by its partner Alpina Chartering in Denmark. (mw)
