Vietnam Receives New Ship Technology

Friday, October 14, 2005
The Viet Nam Ship Buiding Industry Corporation (Vinashin) with assistance from the Ship Design and Research Centre (CTO) of Poland, opened a training course for 30 local ship designers in Ha Noi on Oct. 13, according to a report on www.vnanet.com.

Under the course, Polish experts will transfer advanced shipbuilding technology to the Vietnamese engineers, who will have opportunities to access the most sophisticated ship designing software.

As part of the three-month course, local trainees will join Polish experts in designing the 104,000-ton Aframax ship.

Vinashin set itself a target of being capable of designing 60,000-tonne ships by 2008. To that aim, the corporation has sent a group of designers to Poland to study the building of 100,000-tonne vessels.
