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.

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.
