Athens-based dry bulk owner Diana Shipping has entered into a time charter contract with Singapore’s Koch Shipping for one of its Capesize bulkers.
Under the deal, the company’s 177,243 dwt Baltimore started working for Koch Shipping on May 19 at a gross charter rate of USD 15,000 per day.
The 2005-built vessel has a contract for a period of nineteen to twenty-two months.

Prior to this charter, Baltimore was earning USD 18,050 per day during the period from June 2018 until May 2019 under an employment contract with the Singapore-based company.
