Krey acquires two MPVs

Shipowner Krey Schiffahrts has expanded its fleet to ten vessels with the acquisition of two multipurpose ships.

The deal for BBC Thames and BBC Rio Grande was completed last week – the ships will remain with BBC Chartering.

The 17,300 dwt, ice-classed ships were built in 2008 at the Hudong Shipyard in China. Each vessel is equipped with three 60-tonne capacity cranes and will be used for handling breakbulk and wind energy cargoes, said Krey Schiffahrts.

Daniel Grensemann, managing director of Krey Schiffahrts, said the ships presented a “good opportunity” for the Leer-based shipowner. “We trust that the multipurpose market will remain stable over the next months and will continuing to improve over the coming years – especially due to the lack of newbuilds entering the market.”
