“HHI Group brings decades of expertise in shipbuilding and its sustained focus on quality has contributed to their position as one of the most highly-regarded names in the industry,” he added.

“The addition of four new vessels to our fleet is firmly aligned with Bahri’s long-term strategy for expansion and diversification. Upon delivery, the vessels will contribute towards the growing demand Bahri Dry Bulk is witnessing for the import of essential grains such as barley, wheat and corn into the Kingdom,” he said.

Nezar Banabeela, president of Bahri Dry Bulk, commented: “For Bahri Dry Bulk, the additional vessels will help to address the needs of customers in KSA and the region as well as international companies importing grains into the Kingdom. This, in turn, will enable food security for the Kingdom, and through this initiative, we are proud to play an active role towards achieving an important objective of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.”

Sam. H. Ka, president & COO of HHI, said: “We are honored to further extend the scope of our partnership with a transportation and logistics leader like Bahri. Ours is a long and special relationship that has evolved over many years, and over the course of which we have successfully delivered many other ships to Bahri including VLCCs.”
