China Shipyard Delivers First Dolphin 64 Bulker

Press Release
Thursday, March 28, 2013

The 63,800 dwt bulk carrier 'Amber Champion' has been completed and named at the Chengxi Shipyard Co.

A spokesperson for the shipbuilder addressed guests at the ceremony, and the following is drawn from that speech.

The Dolphin 64 bulk carrier is an energy-efficient, environmental-friendly, and economic Supermax vessel. Not only does it have an index of each function much higher than the required baseline standards, but it also shows unparalleled economy over vessels of similar types.

Designed by SDARI, and built by Chengxi Shipyard Co., Ltd, after consistent efforts of 10 months since the steel cutting on April 30, 2012, the first “Dolphin 64” bulk carrier was finally born along Yangtze River.

By the end of the eleventh five-year plan, the company had a total out-put value exceeding 7.2 billion Yuan annually, achieving the target of annually building 22 vessels with total capacity of one million deadweight tons. Since the twelfth five-year plan began, although facing a declined global marine market, Chengxi has developed bulk carriers of 35,000 DWT, 45,000 DWT, 46,000 DWT, 49,000 DWT, and 63,800 DWT series, and self-unloading vessels of 35,500 DWT and 71, 900 DWT.
