, the Persian service of ISNA reported.
Constructed at the Arvandan Shipbuilding Complex through
the efforts of Iranian engineers, the multi-purpose craft are capable of hauling 800 tons in the form of containers or in bulk. The design and manufacture of the ships required over 85,000 man-hours of labor. It took 14 months to complete the project, which followed international standards.
The vessels are 49.3 meters long, 11.6 meters wide, and 12.34 meters in height, with a waterline of 2.7 meters.
The Arvandan Shipbuilding Complex is also constructing a pool and dry dock to launch and repair vessels up to 70 by 20 meters at the port of Khorramshahr. The modern installation will come on stream this summer.
