HAMBURG – Hamburg Commercial Bank (HCOB) has provided Hamburg Bulk Carriers, a shipping company based in Hamburg and Singapore, with 95 million US-Dollar to refinance a total of seven vessels. The Handymax bulkers are between four and seven years old and have a capacity of approximately 43,500 dwt each. The financing has a term of five years. The deal, which was concluded in Singapore, was brokered by Transport Capital, a partner of Hamburg Commercial Bank that specializes in asset brokerage, among other things.
