Yangzi Mitsui is ushering in a bumper harvest

4 min read
Yangzijiang Mitsui

The joint venture shipyard has been established for less than 3 years and has delivered nearly 30 ships in total, with more than 39 orders in hand. The cooperation between Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Group, the largest private shipping company in China, and Mitsui, the largest consortium in Japan, is ushering in a bumper harvest.

It is reported that Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding, a joint venture shipyard between Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Group and Japan’s Mitsui, has recently received orders for four 66,000dwt bulk carriers. This is the first time Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding has participated in the marketing activities of Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding. According to sources, the order came from Singapore-based company JALDHI OVERSEAS, which is part of an Indian shipper. The new ship will adopt the “neo66BC” design of Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding, which is a wide-body shallow draft 66,000dwt bulk carrier in Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding‘s “neo series” (Type 66) environmentally friendly low fuel consumption ships. Delivery in the second half of the year to the first half of 2025.

Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding signed a drawing supply agreement with Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding for the first time at the end of 2020 to provide Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding with drawings of the Type 66 bulk carrier designed by Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding and will collect license fees when Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding builds related ships. According to the agreement, Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding can charge a certain license fee for each bulk carrier built by Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding.

The latest order is the third time that Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding has undertaken a ship order designed by Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding. Previously, Bangladesh’s Meghna Group ordered four 66,000dwt bulk carriers in January 2021, and another Japanese shipowner ordered four 66,000dwt bulk carriers in July this year. However, so far these new building orders have been sold through trading companies and shipbrokers, and JALDHI‘s order is the first project that Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding is responsible for selling in addition to providing design drawings.

JALDHI currently owns and operates two 66,000dwt bulk carriers built by Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding, Jal Kalpavriksh and Jal Kalpataru, delivered last year. Among them, the “Jal Kalpataru” delivered in July last year is the last commercial ship under construction delivered by Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding.

JALDHI evaluated the performance of the two vessels in actual sea conditions, with their wide body and shallow draft design capable of carrying large volumes of cargo even in shallow water ports in India. JALDHI hopes to order more ships of the same type at Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding, and Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding thus won the order.

It is understood that Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding was established as a joint venture by Mitsui E&S holding subsidiary Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding, Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Group. It was officially opened and put into production in October 2019. As Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding decided to completely withdraw from the shipbuilding market, its merchant shipping business and subsequent orders were transferred to Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding and its Japanese partner Tsuneishi Shipbuilding.

Yangzi Mitsui adheres to the positioning of designing and building high-end marine products, integrating the resource advantages of the Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Group Technology Center, the advanced design concepts of Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding and the research and development capabilities of the ship line, and performance optimization of the Akishima Laboratory. A complete design system integrating concept design to production design. At present, Yangzi Mitsui can build various types of merchant ships under 100,000 tons.

Since the establishment of Yangzi Mitsui, it has given full play to the three core competitiveness of advanced design and development, the quality standards of Mitsui Shipbuilding, and the cost control of Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, and vigorously implemented the international business strategy. From 2020 to 7 ships, 11 ships will be delivered in 2021. 15 ships are planned to be delivered by 2022, and the production capacity has been effectively released and increased.

In addition to bulk carriers, Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding won the first construction contract for three 40,000cbm dual-fuel LPG/Liquid ammonia carriers from German shipowners in June last year, and this year, it has also undertaken two 36,000cbm dual-fuel liquefied ethylene (LEG) Carrier Order. In the future, Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding plans to use oil tankers, chemical tankers such as tankers, LNG, LEG, LPG, and other high-tech and high-value-added clean energy ships as the main products and will become a “large-scale green clean energy ship” production base.

According to the International Ship Network, since the start of production in May 2019, Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding has delivered nearly 30 ships of various types, most of which are bulk carriers. According to Clarkson‘s data, Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding currently has a total of 35 ships with 2.3891 million DWT on order. Except for 3 LPG ships and 2 LEG ships, the remaining 30 ships are bulk carriers. With this order, Yangzi Mitsui Shipbuilding the cumulative number of orders in hand has reached 39, and the production task has been fully scheduled until 2025.

再获4艘!3年70艘!这家“新船厂”迎来丰收季

合资船厂成立不到3年,累计交付近30艘船,手持订单超过39艘,中国最大民营船企扬子江船业集团与日本最大财团三井物产的合作正在迎来丰收的喜悦。

据悉,扬子江船业集团与日本三井的合资船厂扬子三井造船近日接获4艘66000载重吨散货船订单,这是三井E&S造船首次参与扬子三井造船的营销活动。据消息人士透露,这份订单来自新加坡公司JALDHI OVERSEAS,该公司隶属于一家印度托运人。新船将采用三井E&S造船设计的“neo66BC”设计,这是三井E&S造船“neo系列”(66型)环保型低油耗船中的宽体浅吃水船型66000载重吨散货船,预计将在2024年下半年至2025年上半年交付。

三井E&S造船首次在2020年底与扬子三井造船签署图纸供应协议,向扬子三井造船提供三井E&S造船设计的66型散货船图纸,并将在扬子三井造船建造相关船舶时收取许可费用。根据协议规定,扬子三井造船每建造一艘该型散货船,三井E&S造船都可以收取一定的许可费用。

最新的订单是扬子三井造船第三次承接三井E&S造船设计的船舶订单。此前,孟加拉国Meghna Group于2021年1月订造了4艘66000载重吨散货船,今年7月又有日本船东订造了4艘66000载重吨散货船。不过,到目前为止这些新船订单的销售都是通过贸易公司和船舶经纪进行的,而JALDHI的订单则是三井E&S造船在提供设计图纸之外还负责销售的第一个项目。

JALDHI目前拥有并运营两艘由三井E&S造船建造的66000载重吨散货船,分别是“Jal Kalpavriksh”号和“Jal Kalpataru”号,在去年交付。其中,去年7月交付的“Jal Kalpataru”号是三井E&S造船交付的最后一艘在建商船。

JALDHI评估了这两艘船在实际海况下的性能,其宽体浅吃水设计即使在印度的浅水港口也能运载大量货物。JALDHI希望在三井E&S造船追加订造更多同型船,扬子三井造船因而获得了订单。

据了解,扬子三井造船由三井E&S控股子公司三井E&S造船、三井物产和扬子江船业集团合资成立,在2019年10月正式开业投产。由于三井E&S造船决定彻底退出船舶建造市场,其商船业务和后续订单被转移至扬子三井造船以及日本合作伙伴常石造船负责。

扬子三井坚守设计和建造高精尖船舶产品的定位,融合扬子江船业集团技术中心的资源优势、三井E&S造船的先进设计理念和昭岛实验室船舶线型及性能优化的研发能力,形成了从概念设计到生产设计一体化的完整设计体系。目前,扬子三井能够建造10万吨级以下的各类商船。

扬子三井成立以来,充分发挥先进的设计研发、三井造船的品质标准和扬子江船业的成本管控三大核心竞争力,大力实施国际化经营战略,从2020年交船7艘,2021年交船11艘,到2022年计划交船15艘,产能得到了有效地释放和提升。

除了散货船之外,扬子三井造船去年6月首获德国船东3艘40000立方米双燃料LPG/液氨运输船建造合同,今年又承接挪威船东2艘36000立方米双燃料液化乙烯(LEG)运输船订单。未来,扬子三井造船计划以油船、化学品等液货船,LNG、LEG、LPG等高技术含量和高附加值清洁能源船为主要产品,将成为“大型绿色清洁能源船”生产基地。

据国际船舶网了解,从2019年5月投产至今,扬子三井造船累计已经交付了各型船舶近30艘,其中绝大部分为散货船。根据克拉克森数据,目前扬子三井造船手持订单共计35艘238.91万载重吨,除了3艘LPG船和2艘LEG船之外,其余30艘均为散货船,加上此次订单,扬子三井造船累计手持订单达到39艘,生产任务已经满负荷排产至2025年。
