Yangzijiang Shipbuilding clinches contract for the construction of 3 CABU III vessels
The company will construct the vessels for Norway-based Klaveness Combination Carriers ASA.
SGX-listed Yangzijiang Shipbuilding has won the contract for the construction of three 83,300DWT third-generation CABU (CABU III) vessels due for delivery in 2026.
In a bourse filing, Yangzijiang said it will construct the vessels for Klaveness Combination Carriers ASA (KCC) based in Norway.
“The CABU (III) vessels are combination carriers, which are designed to solve the inefficiencies found in the shipping industry.” the company said.
The new CABU III vessels will replace KCC’s older CABU vessels and “are expected to reduce overall carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by approximately 35% due to better fuel-efficient features including wind-assisted propulsion and improved cargo carrying capacity,” said Yangzijiang.
