The 82,000 dwt Kamsarmax bulk carrier was recently named in Vietnam's Hyundai Vinashin Shipyard (HVS).

Nissaki is built for St Michael Shipping of Greece, marking a significant milestone in the development of the shipbuilding capability of Vietnam, being the biggest ship built to date in the country to Lloyd's Register class.

The vessel was built at the joint venture yard, Hyundai Vinashin Shipyard (HVS), located in Khanh Hoa province. HVS is 30% owned by the Vietnamese Vinashin group and operated by Hyundai Mipo Dockyard; fusing the design, management and shipbuilding knowledge of their Korean yard, with a local Vietnamese workforce.

Speaking of the milestone event, Phong Lt, Lloyd’s Register’s Country Manager for Vietnam, said: “This project has raised the profile of what is possible in Vietnam as a shipbuilding country but also is a demonstration of LR account management in practice across the regions with the owners in Greece, Korean influence and the local HVS project team working together to produce such a vessel.”

This is the first vessel classed by Lloyd's Register at HVS, in the developing capacity of the new construction shipyard, and the shipbuilders hope that this will act as the catalyst for more projects at HVS in the near future as the facility progresses.
