Cargo Ship Bound for U.K. Launched
A 53,000-tonne cargo ship built by Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (Vinashin), was launched in the northern port city of Haiphong, on April 20.
The ship, 190m long and 32.26m wide, is one of a series of fifteen due to be handed over to the Graig Investment Group, a UK-based international ship owner and shipping services provider.
It was the second boat of its kind built by Vinashin’s affiliate, Nam Trieu Shipbuilding Company and is also the largest being built in Vietnam under a contract worth nearly US $1 billion between Vinashin and the Graig Group. (source: VNA)
