China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) received 2 Ro Ro project orders since the beginning of this year, the international vehicle carrier market has recovered.
Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) has successively received orders for three 7,000 CEU dual-fuel vehicle carriers, leading the field of global ro-ro ship construction.
Signed an order with K Line for 2 dual-fuel vehicle carriers
K Line recently awards two 7,000 CEU dual-fuel vehicle carriers construction to Jinling Shipyard. The order also marks the first cooperation between the two parties.
The vehicle carrier is part of K Line’s 2050 environmental vision, which is a new generation of green and environmentally friendly vessels. The new generation fleet can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide emissions.
Based on this calculation, the total value of these two new ships is predicted at US$176 million.
Won another order for a 7000CEU dual-fuel carrier from EPS
On September 17, Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) and Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) of Singapore signed another contract for the construction of a 7000CEU dual-fuel vehicle carrier in the form of a “cloud contract”.
This is an additional order within a short period of time after the two parties signed a contract for the construction of 4+2 7,000PCTC dual-fuel vessels on June 24.
This project is about 199.90 meters in length, 38.00 meters in width, 7,000CEU with a total tonnage of 72,000DWT, and is used to load various vehicles and heavy ro-ro cargo.
The series of dual-fuel car carriers can reduce approximately 99% of sulfur oxides, 80% of nitrogen oxides, 90% of particulate matter, and 30% of carbon dioxide emissions.
The vehicle carrier market has recovered. According to Clarkson’s statistics, there were 22 new orders for vehicle carriers in the first eight months of this year. Jinling Shipyard received 8 shipbuilding orders and has delivered 5 large-scale ro-ro vessels in the first half of this year. The performance of Jinligh Shipyard builds great trust to international shipowners over the years.
