Heat Delays Ship Launch

Monday, June 19, 2006
Nhan Dan reports that hot weather was the main reason that caused delays of a 10,500 ton ship during its attempted launch at the Bach Dang Shipbuilding Industry Company in the northern port city of Haiphong, Vietnam on June 17. During the launch, the ship touched the water but the vessel did not make it despite being tugged by another ship. According to a shipyard’s engineer, the paraffin wax for lubrication on the slip-away had been melted due to the high outdoor temperature, leading to increasing friction during the launch and hampering the ship from entering the water. The ship’s owner on June 18 visited the site and totally agreed with the company on the reason of the incident as well as the measures for the next launch of the ship. source: Nhan Dan
