Taiwan’s Wisdom Marine has entered into a contractual agreement with Tsuneishi Shipbuilding for the construction of two state-of-the-art kamsarmax bulk carriers, scheduled for delivery in 2026. The Taipei-based maritime entity, under the leadership of Lan Chun Sheng (James Lan), disclosed the specifics of the transaction through an official filing on the stock exchange, indicating that the twin vessels, each boasting a deadweight tonnage of 82,400, would entail an estimated expenditure of up to $80 million.

Tsuneishi Zhoushan, situated in China, has previously undertaken multiple kamsarmax newbuilding projects for Wisdom Marine, solidifying their collaborative history. This latest accord follows a precedent set in June 2021 when Wisdom Marine placed an order for three similar units at the same shipyard, with a total value approximating $102 million.

Wisdom Marine currently commands a diverse fleet exceeding 100 bulk carriers, maintaining an average fleet age of approximately seven years. The forthcoming addition of 18 newbuilds within the next two-to-three years is anticipated to further enhance the company’s fleet profile.

In a parallel development within the domain of dry bulk newbuildings, industry reports from Clarksons reveal that Kasuga Kaiun of Japan has secured a contract for the construction of two ultramax vessels at the facilities of Chinese shipbuilder New Dayang, with an envisaged delivery timeframe in the latter half of 2026.
