Seaspan Corporation on Tuesday announced it has reached a deal to order six additional containerships, bringing to 37 the number of newbuilds the shipowner has ordered since December 2020.
The six 15,500 TEU neo-panamax box ships will be fitted with exhaust gas cleaning systems (scrubbers) and are expected to be delivered from the second half of 2023 through to mid-year 2024, said Seaspan, a subsidiary of New York-listed Atlas Corp. Once delivered, the vessels will operate under long-term charters with global liner customers.
The ships will be financed from additional borrowings as well as cash on hand, Seaspan said without revealing the “major shipyard” hired to build the vessels.
