press release
Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Graig secures ten-vessel supervision contract for Global Union suezmax newbuildings.

 

Graig China Ltd (GCL), part of the Cardiff-based Graig Group, has been contracted by Hong Kong-based Global Union Shipping Limited to supervise the construction of ten 157,000 dwt suezmax crude oil tankers building at Jiangsu Rongsheng Heavy Industries Co Ltd in China. The last vessel in the ten-ship order is due for delivery in January 2014.

 

GCL is supervising – or has already delivered - forty other newbuildings at the Rongsheng shipyard. The total number of ships in GCL’s newbuilding programme is now nearing 150.

 

Global Union says that one of the main reasons it chose Graig for the supervision of the suezmax tanker newbuildings was the fact that it had been very impressed by the excellent performance of GCL and the fitting-out evident in other newbuildings in China supervised by Graig.
