Lugano-based shipowner and operator Nova Marine Carriers plans to flip some of the ships in its order for up to 18 mini-bulk carriers. In 2018, Nova Marine Carriers signed a $150 million deal with Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding to construct 18 bulk carriers. Originally, Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding scheduled the delivery of bulk carriers in July 2019, however, that schedule was postponed after Nova Marine Carriers asked for design adjustments. Nova Marine Carriers believe that short voyages, modern bulk carriers designs make scrubbers unnecessary. However, Nova Marine Carriers is keen to receive the new-building bulk carriers ahead of the implementation of the IMO (International Maritime Organization) 2020 regulation. Nova Marine Carriers built or modified 40 bulk carriers at Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding since 2005. Therefore, Zhejiang Xinle Shipbuilding offers flexibility to Nova Marine Carriers for the remaining 12 mini-bulk carriers. Currently, Swiss-Italian shipowner and operator Nova Marine Carriers controls a mixed fleet of cement carriers, handysize bulk carriers, and the short-sea (coaster) bulk carriers. 21-July-2019
