Shipbuilding Company to Stay Busy Until 2012

Tuesday, July 17, 2007
Taiwan's CSBC has received orders for 11 container ships, which boosts CSBC's total orders to 67 ships, enough to keep CSBC busy until 2012, the company said on Tuesday. On Monday, CSBC signed a contract to build seven container ships for Taiwan's Yangming Marine, CSBC President Fan Kuang-nan told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa. The order, worth 800m, is for five 8,240-TEU container ships and two 6,600-TEU container ships, to be delivered before 2012. The Yangming order comes at the heels of a European shipping company's order for four container ships. CSBC president Huang signed the contract in Switzerland last week. It includes a firm order for four 1,700-TEU container ships worth $250m, with the option for two more. Source: Earth Times
