Containership build gets underway in China

29 Apr 2013

China Shipping Industry Co Ltd (CIC) has begun work this week on the 10,000 teu containership for China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL).

The shipbuilder says that it will be the largest and most advanced ship of its size ever to be built in China.

It’s understood that the vessel will be delivered during the second half of 2014.

Construction began on the back of an arrangement signed between CIC, China Shipping Group (CSG) and China Shipbuilding Group Corporation (CSSC) last month to cooperate on newbuild vessels at Hudong shipyard.

Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co Ltd is a large shipbuilding enterprise under the leadership of CSSC.

The aim of the ongoing cooperation is to create a win-win situation for both parties, to help CIC move along technologically and bring new business opportunities to CSSC.
