The move is to part of a continued integration of shipbuilding and repair assets under the arm of China Merchants Group.
Currently, Jinling Shipyard has 39 ships order in hand while Jiangdong Shipyard has four ships order.
Jinling Shipyard, Jiangdong Shipyard, Qingshan Shipyard and Yichang Shipyard, owned by Sinotrans-CSC Shipbuilding Industry, were the four major shipbuilding facilities of Sinotrans-CSC. Qingshan shipyard delivered its last ship in 2018 and exited the shipbuilding market; Yichang Shipyard has also suspended operations, while Jinling and Jiangdong are the two active shipyards of Sinotrans-CSC Shipbuilding Industry.
Sinotrans-CSC Shipbuilding Industry was merged into China Merchants Group as a part of the overall integration progress between China Merchants Group and Sinotrans-CSC.
