Bahri acquires third newbuild

July 25 - The National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) has received its newbuild 26,000 dwt general cargo vessel, Bahri Tabuk.

The Hyundai MIPO Shipyard in South Korea built the vessel and Bahri Tabuk is the third newbuild delivered by the shipyard from a SAR1,543 million (USD411.5 million) six-ship contract agreed in 2011.
The new ro-con vessel specialises in carrying general, project and ro-ro cargoes. The vessel comes equipped with heavy lift cranes capable of lifting up to 240 tonnes.
According to Bahri the newbuilds are smaller in size compared to the current fleet but have a higher cargo lifting capacity and lower fuel consumption. It is estimated that Bahri Tabuk will consume as much as 45 percent less fuel than vessels currently employed in its fleet.
The remaining three general cargo vessels under construction at the MIPO Shipyard will be delivered during late 2013 and the first half of 2014.
