Himalaya Shipping’s first LNG-powered bulker nearing delivery

China’s New Times is finalizing work on Himalaya Shipping’s first out of twelve LNG-powered Newcastlemax bulk carriers.

Himalaya Shipping said in a social media post on Thursday that the 208,000-dwt dual-fuel Mount Norefjell had completed its sea trials.

“We’re only six weeks away from delivering Mount Norefjell on charter,” Tor Olav Trøim’s Himalaya Shipping said.

The firm did not provide any additional information.

New Times launched this vessel and Mount Ita in November.

In December, Himalaya Shipping revealed a charter deal with a “major Japanese counterpart” for one LNG-powered bulker, probably Mount Norefjell.

It said that the vessel would start a two-year time charter for $30,000 per day upon delivery from New Times in March/April 2023.

Prior to this deal, Himalaya Shipping already chartered six out of the twelve 208,000-dwt LNG dual-fuel bulk carriers.

Himalaya Shipping plans to take delivery of all of the 300 meters long ships until October 2024.
