Oman Shipping Company Welcomes New Ultramax to Its Fleet

Muscat-based Oman Shipping Company (OSC) held a naming ceremony for its newest dry bulk carrier, the Jabal Shams, on September 9.

Built at China’s Changhong International Shipyard, the 63,500 dwt vessel was officially handed over to OSC, a member of the ASYAD Group.

The Jabal Shams is one of four Ultramax bulkers scheduled for delivery to the company in 2019, joining a fleet of over 50 world-class vessels including LNG carriers, LPG carriers, VLCCs, tankers, VLOCs, dry cagro, and container ships.

The ceremony follows the naming and delivery of Jabal Shams’ sister vessel, the Jabal Almisht, in Zhoushan in August.

“The delivery of the Jabal Shams and Jabal Almisht is part of OSC Dry Cargo expansion program that will enhance our position in the segment as a key shipping provider for GCC and global markets. Both vessels will be operating under long-term cargo contracts,” Michael Jorgensen, OSC’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, said.
