Polsteam (Polska Żegluga Morska), the largest Polish shipowner and one of the largest in Europe, has acquired its newest and largest bulk carrier, TVN24 reports. The Giewont built in New Times Shipyard near Shanghai was launched on September 26th. The ship - 230 metres long, over 32 metres wide and 80,000 DWT capacity ? is the largest bulk carrier ever owned by the Polish Merchant Navy. It is also among the largest ships which are allowed to cross the Panama Canal, known as the panamax. The vessel is to carry coal, grains, iron etc.

Giewont is the tenth ship acquired within the Polsteam fleet upgrade programme carried out since 2008. The company currently owns 34 bulk carriers. Four of them, with capacity of 38,000 tonnes each, were purchased in 2008 from Xingang shipyard, and five more units were acquired in 2009.

The Giewont is the first out of four bulk carriers ordered at the New Times Shipyard and the first of eleven ships which Polsteam expects to have delivered in 2010, TVN24 informs.
