Client cancels order from Singapore-listed shipbuilder

Singapore-listed Cosco Corp said on Wednesday that a customer has scrapped orders for two of five bulk carriers because of unfavourable market conditions, reported Reuters.

The Chinese ship building and repair firm will also postpone delivery of the remaining three vessels to June 2010 from December 2009, it said in a filing to the Singapore Exchange. The order was made in July 2007.

Cosco did not disclose the contract value, but a July 2007 statement said the firm had clinched orders for eight 57,000 deadweight tonne bulk carriers worth a total of $313 million.

As part compensation, the buyer has to pay 80 percent of the contract price for the remaining three vessels this month.

The buyer will also compensate Cosco Dalian for all expenses incurred for the two cancelled orders, for which construction has not started.
