MSC stretches newbuilding pipeline with 20-ship haul at New Times

Chinese shipyard New Times Shipbuilding has won 20 dual-fuelled boxship orders from MSC, which continues to expand its market-leading orderbook.

MSC has reportedly commissioned ten 8,100 TEU ships and ten 11,400 TEU ships at New Times, just a week after agreeing to long-term charters with three Japanese tonnage providers for four 23,000 TEU ships.

It is the largest order for New Times since its establishment in 2000. With these 20 ships, the current number of orders for dual-fuelled ships at New Times has reached 51 ships, with a total of 7.57 million dwt, ranking first among Chinese shipyards.
