Shipping to Boomsma y Leonhardt and Blumberg teamed up to order four 8,500-ton, short-haul dry-ocean cargo ships in Chowgule Yard Group and they signed their intention to get four more in the future.
In collaboration with the design company Conoship International, Boomsma Shipping has developed a next-generation, low-cost sea dry cargo vessel. In the early stages of project development, Leonhardt and Blumberg, based in Hamburg, became a partner, thereby entering from the tanker market to the short sea dry cargo market.
Johan Boomsma, owner of Boomsma Shipping, He noted that “climate change can no longer be ignored and a change of course is urgently needed. Regulations are in place to achieve a greener shipping industry. In the short term, our focus is reduced fuel consumption. As a result, emissions are reduced.”
In this regard, Torben Koelln, director general of Leonhardt & Blumberg, He explained that “the short space of maritime shipping is where most of the innovation is taking place to make ships more energy efficient and achieve lower emissions, for example, CO2. “By entering this market, our group will be one of the first adopters of these new technologies and therefore want to invest in a modern ship.”
“We are proud that they gave us the contracts for the construction of their ships. “We give special thanks to JR Ship Brokers & Consultants who went beyond their calling as a coordinating broker for the new construction to align all interests and make the deal a reality,” he concluded.
