LNG-powered bulker owner Himalaya Shipping achieved average time charter equivalent earnings of about $28,300 per day in May.

Tor Olav Trøim’s Himalaya said in a commercial update on Tuesday that its two vessels trading on index-linked time charter earned about $27,400 per day, gross, including average daily scrubber benefits of about $2,500 per day last month.

The company’s only vessel trading on fixed time charter earned $30,000 per day, gross, it said.

China’s New Times Shipbuilding is building in total twelve LNG dual-fuel Newcastlemax bulk

Earlier this year, Himalaya took delivery of the first vessel, Mount Norefjell, followed by the delivery of the second vessel, Mount Ita, and the third vessel, Mount Etna.

The latest and the fourth LNG-powered bulker, Mount Blanc, joined Himalaya’s fleet on May 31.

Up to date, Himalaya secured charter deals for nine of these ships.
