Signing ceremony for new Damen shipyard in Vietnam

The signing ceremony recently took place for the start of construction of the new Damen Vinashin shipbuilding facility in Haiphong, Vietnam.

Song Cam Shipyard has been appointed by Vinashin to act as the local partner in the construction and operation of the new shipyard which is a joint venture between Vinashin and Damen. Completion of the first phase of the project is planned for February 2012 and will enable the shipyard to concentrate on the outfitting, under cover, of hulls built by Song Cam Shipyard. Capacity is around 12 vessels per year and all current orders are for export.

Facilities in the first phase include a 2,500 tonne capacity Syncrolift, an 80m by 40m outfitting hall and various workshops and offices. In the second phase of the five year plan the maximum annual capacity will be increased to 30 tugs, workboats and high speed craft in a 160m by 150m dedicated outfitting hall. Sufficient room is available on the 42 hectare site for the construction of hulls as well as for sub-contractors and suppliers in the final phase of the five year plan.
