NewLead Holdings (NEWL +238.3%) skyrockets after announcing its dry bulk, eco-type handysize vessel, NewLead Albion, had been delivered to the company's fleet.

The Newlead Albion is one of the two eco-type vessels NEWL agreed to acquire in March for $18.5N each; NEWL says the market value of each vessel is now ~$20.25M, and expects the second vessel to be delivered to its fleet this July.

The eco-type ships are both more fuel-efficient and emit less carbon dioxide than earlier vessels.

NEWL expects the ship to generate $2M/year EBITDA.
