China Rongsheng Heavy Industries Group Holdings Ltd. (1101) is in talks with two coastal cities and government departments to secure financial assistance, as the nation’s shipowners association forecast a slump in vessel orders will run through next year, reports Bloomberg.

The country’s largest shipyard outside state control is in discussions with Rugao and Nantong cities and some ministry-level departments related to the shipping industry, according to Bloomberg, citing Rongsheng spokesman William Li.  The company said July 5 it was seeking financial assistance from the government after a plunge in orders forced it to reduce production and “restructure” its workforce.

Rongsheng and other Chinese shipmakers are struggling as a global vessel glut makes orders more difficult to win and pushes down prices.
