G2 Ocean Strengthens Fleet with a New Bulk Carrier

June 8, 2020 - G2 Ocean announced that Star Nike, a new-building of 63,000 deadweight tonnage capacity, joined G2 Ocean’s bulk pool on June 5.

Star Nike is a conventional bulk carrier constructed and equipped at a first-class shipbuilding dockyard at Imabari, Japan. She was named and delivered to Grieg Star on June 5, 2020, and is on a Long Term Time Charter contract.

Vice President Bulk Petter Mowinckel at G2 Ocean is honoured to be trusted with another Ultramax from Grieg Star.

“Amid COVID-19, the delivery of Star Nike underlines our commitment to offering the best possible service to both new and existing customers, even at challenging times,” Mowinckel says.

“The ship offers the highest standards of safety, stability, and fuel efficiency. She will not only give us a competitive advantage but also allow us to provide additional capacity and flexibility to our customers,” he adds.

Star Nike is named after a goddess from Greek mythology. Nike is the goddess of strength, speed and victory – symbolising famous athletes and their victorious competitions.
