China Rongsheng Heavy Industries delivers the ninth and tenth 380,000-dwt class Very Large Ore Carriers (VLOCs).

Christened Vale Jiangsu  and Vale Shinas, the two new Rongsheng-built 380,000 DWT class VLOCs have been delivered to Vale S.A. and Oman Shipping Company S.A.O.C. respectively.

Rongsheng say that the vessels adopt an environmentally friendly design to achieve lower oil consumption and reduce the emission of CO2, while  operating efficiency exceeds that of most existing ore carriers. With Energy Efficiency Design Index recorded at approximately 1.99 during sea trials, Rongsheng-built VLOCs are in line with low-carbon green product initiative and meet the benchmark requirements on emission reduction set by International Maritime Organization, which came into effect as of 1 January 2013.

At this time, China Rongsheng Heavy Industries has delivered ten VLOCs (with one completed in 2011, six in 2012 and three in 2013) out of the 16 380,000 DWT class VLOCs ordered.

The shipbuilders add that the four VLOCs ordered by Oman Shipping Company S.A.O.C. have all been delivered. Despite ongoing challenges in the shipbuilding industry brought about by the global financial crisis and the European debt crisis, the delivery schedule of China Rongsheng Heavy Industries has not been unduly impacted.
