Hamilton, Bermuda, June 4, 2020

2020 Bulkers is pleased to announce that it today took delivery of the seventh of the eight 208,000 dwt Newcastlemax newbuildings. The final newbuilding is expected to be delivered later this month.

The vessel will on June 6, 2020, commence a 35-37 month index-linked time charter with ST Shipping, a 100% owned subsidiary of Glencore. The index-linked charter rate reflects a significant premium to a standard Capesize as a function of higher cargo intake and lower fuel consumption. The vessel will also earn an additional premium related to the fuel cost saving from the scrubber.
