The Norwegian carrier Klaveness, whose business areas include dry bulk and combination vessels, has converted one of its two Kamsarmax newbuildings to three combination vessel newbuildings at the Chinese Jiangsu New Yangzi yard, Klaveness CEO Lasse Kristoffersen tells ShippingWatch.

With the conversion, Klaveness wants to strengthen its combination vessel segment, which is the carrier's trade mark in mainly the dry bulk market. And although the vessels, set to be delivered from the second half of 2018, will not arrive with a contract attached, they will enter into one of the existing services, for instance Australia and the Far East as well as the Middle East, where the carrier already sails with caustic soda, aluminum, iron ore, salt and bauxite.
