Sinopacific Shipbuilding Kicks Off Construction

Thursday, March 17, 2011

(By Ding Xiaobing) Yangzhou Dayang Shipyard, an affiliated yard of Sinopacific Shipbuilding Group, started building two lead ships in March. One of them is the bulk carrier Crown 63 (63,500DWT), classified under BV register and self designed by Sinopacific; Another is the LPG vessel Tiger 12000 (12000m3) built for an Iranian ship owner, which is classified under Norway’s DNV register and China’s CCS register.

A new generation Supramax bulk carrier, fully developed by Sinopacific with independent intellectual property and the most advanced ship design, Crown 63 boasts an overall length of 199.99 meters, breadth of 32.26 meters, depth of 18.50 meters, scantling draft of 13.30 meters, deadweight capacity of 63,500 tons and service speed of 14.5 knots. Compared with existing commercially available 58,000-DWT Supramax bulk carriers, Crown 63 delivers a 9% increase in load capacity and 13% saving in fuel consumption without sacrificing speed. Crown 63 has received BV’s Green Passport, meeting the ship owner’s demand for fuel efficiency and environment friendliness. During the international financial crisis of 2009, these advantages allowed Crown 63 to win an order of 16 ships, the largest order among international ship owners.

With overall length of 138 meters, breadth of 21.60 meters, depth of 11.90 meters, scantling draft of 9.30 meters and service speed of 15.5 knots, LPG vessel Tiger 12000 can be used to transfer toxic, combustible and hazardous goods like propylene, propane, butane, acetaldehyde, poly-oxygen propylene aether and ether. The LPG vessel is widely recognized as a high-end ship, characterized by high technology, high value-added and with high construction difficulties. Sinopacific Dayang Shipyard has accumulated abundant experience in building this type of ship, to-date having built three 16,500 m3 Semi-refrigerated Semi-pressurized LPG vessels for its customers and delivered all vessels on schedule – in this case, by December of 2010.

“Ship for your success” - Sinopacific is moving forward holding its vision of shipping more success for its customers and partners.
