        EuroDry是一家从Euroseas公司分拆出来专门从事干散货航运的公司,本月底前将完成九艘散货船上压载水处理装置安装工作。
 
        这家船东在涵盖2021年度第二份可持续发展报告中透露:“我们有八艘船(89%)都安装了压载水处理装置( ballast water treatment plants,简称BWTP),我们预计于2022年8月前安装最后一个BWTP。”另外,该公司强调其整个船队都将使用该技术。
 
        随今年最新的两次收购后,该公司现有一支由11艘船舶组成的船队,总载重量达802,995载重吨。
 
        EuroDry公司视更新船队为其实现2030年和2050年可持续发展目标的途径。
 
        该公司表示:“我们的目标是用新型船舶和更新的技术实现船队现代化,从而带来更加节能的船舶和更加环保的足迹。
 
        然而,该公司还未作出详细的船队投资计划。
 
        该可持续发展报告发布于2022年上半年业绩强劲背景之下,EuroDry公司报告其总净收入为3930万美元,其中属于普通股股东的净利润为2110万美元。
 
        EuroDry公司董事长兼首席执行官Aristides Pittas评论表示:“报告表示另一季度的收益甚好,是EuroDry成立以来最高收益纪录之一,为此我们感到非常高兴。但值得注意的是,2022年第二季度后期及7月,干散货市场开始显现出更广范围的经济、地缘政治环境中的波动与不确定性,虽然租价与5月下旬水平相比下降了近40%,但仍处于盈利范围。第三季度我们会有三个干船坞,因此,我们预计盈利将减少,但仍然很可观。”
 
        另外,他补充道:“该行业的好消息依然来自供应方面,订单量仍为船队的7%左右,接近历史最低水平。在未来2-3年内,只要需求的不确定性减弱,经济的平均增长水平恢复,由此带来船舶交付量的减少应能使市场迅速恢复。”
 
        Aristides Pittas还表示:“同时,我们正在对流动性进行自我定位,以利用更多传统投资机会,并在这种机会出现时收购符合我们投资标准的船舶。"

EuroDry wraps up installation of BWT plants across nine ships
 
EuroDry, a spin-off from Euroseas focusing on dry bulk shipping, is set to complete the installation of ballast water treatment plants on board nine bulkers by the end of this month.
 
“Eight of our vessels (89%) have ballast water treatment plants (BWTP) installed on-board. We expect the installation of the last BWTP by August 2022,” the shipowner revealed in its second sustainability report covering 2021, stressing that its entire fleet would be fitted with the technology.
 
Following the latest two acquisitions from this year, the company now owns a fleet of 11 vessels, with a total cargo capacity of 802,995 dwt.
 
EuroDry sees fleet rejuvenation as its pathway toward reaching 2030 and 2050 SDG targets.
 
“The aim is to modernize our fleet with new vessels and newer technologies which will lead to more energy efficient vessels and an environmentally friendlier footprint to the industry,” the company said.
 
However, the company is yet to come out with concrete fleet investment plans.
 
The sustainability report is being published on the back of a strong first half of 2022, with EuroDry reporting total net revenues of $39.3 million, and a net income attributable to common shareholders of $21.1 million.
 
“We are very pleased to report another quarter with very good earnings, one of the highest since the inception of the EuroDry. It is notable though that in the latter part of the second quarter of 2022, and during the month of July, the drybulk market started reflecting the volatility and uncertainties present in the broader economic and geopolitical environment registering charter rate declines of nearly 40% as compared to their late May levels, though still well into profitable range. During the third quarter, we will also have 3 drydockings and we, therefore, expect our profitability to be reduced but still remain significant,” Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of EuroDry commented.
 
“The good news for the sector continue to come from the supply side where the orderbook remains at about 7% of the fleet near its lowest level ever. The resulting reduced vessel deliveries over the next 2-3 years should allow the market to quickly recover as long as demand uncertainties subside and average economic growth resumes.
 
“At the same time, we are positioning ourselves liquidity-wise to capitalize on more traditional investment opportunities and acquire vessels consistent with our investment criteria should such opportunities appear.”
