Bulker with a bite

Denmark’s Nordic Bulk Carriers, a subsidiary of Pangaea Logistics Solutions, has taken delivery of the 76,180dwt bulk carrier Nordic Olympic as the second of four ice class bulk carriers it is having built in Japan by Oshima Shipyard, with the final unit to be delivered early next year.

Class leader Nordic Oshima was delivered late last year while the third ship, Nordic Odin, is to follow Nordic Olympia by several weeks. On her maiden voyage, Nordic Olympic loaded coal at Vancouver, Canada’s Roberts Bank for discharge in Swinoujscie, Poland.

Although built to the highest commercial ice class 1A standards, the ship used the Panama Canal for her maiden transit to the Atlantic but may see work in the Arctic later this year. This will also be the case for Nordic Odin following her completion of a short-term charter handling coal from Russia to Japan. The four ships are expected to make Nordic Bulk Carriers the world’s leading operator of 1A ice classed dry bulk tonnage. JS
