The keel for another vessel ordered by Chipolbrok was laid at the Chengxi Shipyard Co., Ltd. in Jiangyin on Thursday, 29 July. The event was attended by representatives of the shipowner and the two classification societies overseeing the dual-class construction PRS and DNV.
A total of four vessels fulfilling the functions of a container ship were ordered. The handover of the vessels built under PRS supervision is scheduled for the end of 2022.
PRS supervision is carried out by the Head Office in Gdansk in terms of processing and approval of classification documentation and by a team of inspectors from the PRS facility in Shanghai in terms of supervision of the construction of the vessels and supervision of the production of Chinese-made materials and equipment.
For the Chengxi shipyard, this is the first order for multi-purpose vessels designed to carry special, heavy and bulky cargoes.
