The Saigon Shipbuilding & Marine Industries One Member Co, Ltd. (Saigon Shipmarin) is completing construction of an 60- x 11-meter LPG carrier. With capacity for 1,400 cubic meters in two tanks the vessel’s hull has a four-meter molded depth and a 2.6-meter draft.

Designed by a related company to Saigon Shipmarin, the vessel, to be named FACO, is owned by the F.A. Joint Stock Company. Being built to the Vietnam Register Rules and National Inland Regulations, the vessel will be classed for near shore and river operations. A pair of Cummins 855 diesels delivering 400 HP each proves propulsion power. Two Cumming 6C engines power 120 kW generator sets.

This is the first vessel built by the yard to this design but it is anticipated that this may well be the first of a growing class.

Saigon Shipmarin is a member of SBIC (Shipbuilding Industry Corporation) and is under the control of the Vietnam Ministry of Transport. The yard, located at Ho Chi Minh City, operates as a new building and ship repair facility. The yard’s products include OSVs, tugs boats, LPG tankers, and passenger vessels.
