The eight vessels will be built by Indian shipbuilder Cochin Shipyard. These new, modern vessels will contribute to both the growth and fleet renewal of the existing Wilson fleet. 

HLPFI reported in June 2013 that Wilson placed an order for the construction of six 3,800 dwt newbuildings, and it holds options for eight more. 

The 14 new ships will be delivered from the first half of 2025 until 2028.
