LONDON (ICIS)--Odfjell has signed a ship building contract with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Ltd for four chemical tankers for 2014 delivery, it said on Tuesday.
The contract, worth about $160m (€131m), is for four 46,000 deadweight tonne (dwt) vessels with 22 coated cargo tanks, the Norwegian shipping and storage group said.
“The new ships will have an eco-friendly design with less fuel consumption,” it added, and will replace a number of old vessels it has recycled over the past few years.
