Erasmus expands its containership and LPG carriers fleet

Despite the recent downward market corrections Erasmus Shipinvest Group (ESI) has spared no effort to get the 1st ever Feeder containership Newbuilding delivered from the top-class Japanese shipyard.

c/v Feeder Ace (Kyokuyo Shipyard-1096 TEU) joined the company’s dynamic and state-of-the-art management fleet, dedicatedly serving one of the world’s largest and most respectful liner-major companies for the next multiple years. The vessel is the newest eco-designed with EEDI Phase-3 compliance with long-term sustainable operations and good trading performance for the company’s premier customers.

The vessel has Vietnamese and Filipino crews onboard.
In the LPG carriers sector Erasmus has recently acquired M/V “Bougainville” which is the 2nd LPG Gas Carrier (2014 built by Murakami Hide, 5.000cbm fully-pressurized type).
It is just about half year time after Erasmus Shipinvest Group’s takeover of the 1st-ever LPG gas ship “Astrid” and the company hopes to see more LPG gas vessels to come under Erasmus Gas fleet in the sustainable future.

“Bougainville” just freshly passed drydock surveys in Papua New Guinea and will serve her Switzerland & France based Time Charterers customer, being one of the world’s largest gas-trading companies, trading mainly Australia and New Zealand areas. The ship will be commercially managed by Erasmus group’s offices out of Greece & Japan, China and Vietnam, with Indian crews onboard.

Erasmus Shipinvest Group (ESI) has been set up by Zhongyi John Su, started trading since 2010, with focus on oceangoing dry-bulk segments in the maritime transport sector, as well as container feeder and LPG gas carrier domains, on assets owning/management and chartering operations.

With over 500 seafarers and more than 40 staffs ashore, the company serves global commodity-trading and industrial customers from various offices in the shipping centers of Greece, Singapore, China, the Netherlands, Japan and Switzerland.

Erasmus currently manages and operates a “state-of-art” fleet of modern Panamax/Kamsarmax/Ultramax/Handysize bulkers, feeder containerships and LPG Gas Carriers in the pipeline.

ESI takes full advantage of the management’s broad shipping and financial knowledge as well as their business network ranging from Europe to the Far East.
