China Rongsheng Heavy Industries & DNV sign classification agreement for 10 Suezmax bulk ships

China Rongsheng Heavy Industries has signed a classification agreement for ten157,000 DWT suezmaxes and a senior management conference was also held in conjunction with this agreement.

China Rongsheng and DNV have had a strategic partnership for some years. The newly-signed classification agreement for the ten 157,000 DWT suezmaxes not only strengthens the partnership between the two parties, but also demonstrates the regard of world-class classification societies for  China Rongsheng’s products, say Rongsheng.

China Rongsheng is striving to achieve breakthroughs in the offshore engineering business in 2012, and believe the enhanced partnership with DNV will definitely help them to narrow the technological gap between Chinese shipbuilders and their peers in Europe and U.S.

 Mr. Madsen showed his admiration at the development progress of China Rongsheng during the conference. As he mentioned, China Rongsheng is always an important strategic partner of DNV, and the two parties are going to strengthen the strategic cooperation, with focus on the research of high-value added and cost efficient vessels, as well as offshore engineering and LNG-related topics, in the near future.

DNV CEO Mr. Henrik O. Madsen, DNV Vice President and Area Chair for Greater China Mr. Joerg Beiler, China Rongsheng President and CEO Mr. Chen Qiang, China Rongsheng Vice President Mr. Chen Wenjun, Jiangsu Rongsheng Vice President Mr. Chang Jianhua, and other senior management attended both the ceremony and the conference.
