Vessel Christened at Bach Dang Shipyard

September 19, 2007

Bach Dang Shipyard Corporation, an affiliate of the Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group (Vinashin), on September 18 christened the 22,500-ton VTC Dragon. The vessel was later handed over to the Viet Nam Sea Transport and Chartering Company. The ship, 502-ft. long and 85.3 ft. wide, is equipped with a 6,253 kW engine imported from Japan and was built under the supervision of Japan's NK company. VTC Dragon is the third of its kind built to date under a contract of eight such vessels for subsidiaries of the Viet Nam National Shipping Lines (Vinalines).

So far, the ships are the largest to be built by the Bach Dang Shipyard. The shipyard is also carrying out a contract to build ships of 4,900 tons for an Italian owner and a 17,500-ton ship for a Republic of Korea owned company. Source: Vietnam Agency
