Last month, the company disclosed a plan to build up to eighteen 4,600 TEU ships with the total value of the contracts to be around RMB4.5 billion (US$695million).
The vessels are expected to be delivered in the next 2-4 years and will be deployed for domestic coastal shipping services, according to Singapore's Splash 247.
The newbuilding contracts will be funded by the proceeds from the IPO the company completed in September last year.
