On 19th May, The China Navigation Company ("CNCo") named the last two in the current series of B.Delta39 handy-size bulk carriers built at Zhejiang Ouhua Shipyard at Zhoushan in Mainland China. MV Powan and MV Poyang were christened by Mrs Sarah Woodrow, wife of CNCo Managing Director, James Woodrow and Mrs Linda Bradley, wife of Swire Properties Chief Executive Guy Bradley; the ships are CNCo's 234th and 238th new-buildings respectively.

On 27th June, CNCo named MV Taiyuan, its first Imabari Bari-Star 38,000 dwt log-fitted bulk carrier, at Imabari Shipyard in Japan. The Lady Sponsor was Mrs Rebecca Rae-Smith, wife of JB Rae-Smith, Executive Director of Swire Pacific's Trading & Industrial Division. Taiyuan is the first of four handy-size vessels contracted by CNCo from Imabari, all to be delivered in 2016.
