The first of a series of eight 22,500-ton ships to be built under a contract between the Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (Vinashin) and the Vietnam National Shipping Lines Corporation (Vinalines) was delivered on March 27. The Golden Falcon Ship, built by the Bach Dang Shipbuilding Company – an affiliate of Vinashin, was launched since November 2006. The cargo ship was designed by VINAKITA, a joint venture between Vinashin and Japan’s KITADA, with a 6,230HP main engine. It was built under the supervision of NK, a Japanese registration agency. The 153.2m-long and 26m-wide ship is the biggest bulk carrier built by the Bach Dang Shipbuilding Company and will be operated by Falcon Shipping Company – a subsidiary of Vinalines which specialises in transporting petroleum and gas. source: VNA
