Vietnam to Build First Tanker

Wednesday, April 19, 2006
The tanker, named Dung Quat No 1 is scheduled for launch in 2007, the VietNamNet Bridge reported. The Infrastructure Development and Construction Corporation (Licogi) and Contex Construction Company (belonging to Vinashin) are working to acquire the necessary mechanical equipment to build a dry dock 380 x 90 x 15m. Such a dry dock is necessary for construction and repair of vessels of up to 300,000 tonnes. The main dock infrastructure will be completed in June, so that Vinashin can begin building the first 100,000 tonne oil tanker this July. Vinashin is now seeking supply of 4,000 tonnes of steel and iron. The corporation is also hiring 100 qualified engineers from local enterprises and 20 foreign experts from the Republic of Korea and Poland to advise on the project. Once launched in 2007, the tanker will transport materials and products to Dung Quat Oil Refinery. (Source: VietNamNet Bridge)
