Wilson newbuildings

Norwegian short-sea shipowner Wilson ASA has signed a contract for the construction of eight 6,300 dwt future-proof newbuildings with a focus on environmental benefits, flexibility, and efficiency.

This new order comes in addition to the six 3800 dwt vessels Wilson ASA announced in June 2023, as Shipping Telegraph reported on 15th of June 2023.

The total of 14 newbuildings will be delivered from 1st half of 2025 until 2028, with the 6300 dwt vessels being delivered in direct continuation of the previously announced 3800 dwt vessels.

These new modern vessels will contribute to both growth and fleet renewal of the existing Wilson fleet employed in the European short-sea trade, and is a step in the right direction to further reduce the company’s carbon footprint, as Wilson ASA states.
