Hanjin Disposes of Capesize Bulker
- Business & Finance
South Korea-based shipping company Hanjin Shipping is selling its bulk carrier Hanjin Cape Lambert for a price of USD 19 million, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
The 2009-built Capesize, which features 179,100 dwt, was purchased by Indian shipowner Great Eastern Shipping.
The bulker was constructed by Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries.
Following the sale, Hanjin’s bulker fleet will consist of 15 vessels, including Postpanamax, Capesize, Panamax, Handy and Supramax bulk carriers.
Earlier in October, the company sold two of its Supramaxes, Keoyang Majesty and Keoyang Noble, for scrap.
Featuring 51,700 dwt, both vessels were built by HHI in 1997.
