Japan’s NYK Line has changed its shipbuild plans by switching several orders to other ship types which will be built at Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries.

A pair of 9,300teu ships have been replaced with two 300,000dwt very large crude carriers (VLCC), NYK said.

NYK had originally ordered five ships of this class from the Japanese yard, but will now take three instead.

The original nine-ship contract with Hyundai Heavy Industries for wide-beamed 4,500teu containerships has been cut down to four.

The company has converted the order to three Capesize bulkers and a pair of long-range two product tankers.
