Tomini Shipping adds capacity through delivery of modern capesize bulk carrier

Tomini Shipping, a world class dry bulk ship owner, hits yet another milestone in its expansion journey with the acquisition of Tomini K12. This Chinese-built capesize bulk cargo ship of 208,286 DWT will be the largest carrier in the existing fleet.

The addition of Tomini K12, formerly known as MP The Vrabel, brings Tomini’s fleet to a total of 28 vessels with an average age of six years.

This acquisition is well-aligned with the company’s growth strategy of enhancing its fleet composition. Specifically, increasing the cargo capacity per vessel and reducing emissions on a per deadweight ton basis.
