Polsteam received from shipyards three new vessels during the last week of June.
On 26 June, Polsteam received two bulk carriers: mv "Gdynia", built by Xingang Shipyard in Tianjin and mv "Skawa" from Sanfu Shipyard in Taizhou.
Mv "Gdynia" is the seventeenth in a very long series of bulkers of 38,000 dwt ordered by Polsteam in Xingang. This type of handy-size vessels are highly rated by customers and quickly find employment - even in the current very difficult market conditions.
