CSSC plans to build China's largest shipyard in Guangdong

Hong Kong: China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) is looking for a site for its south China shipbuilding base, which could become China's largest shipyard when completed.
A CSSC field study group has been scouting Guangdong's coastal areas for initial selection of an appropriate site. Jieyang city, with 82 km of coastline, has become one of the key candidates for the planned shipyard.
CSSC is a large scale central enterprise with 60 subsidiaries and is the leader of China's shipbuilding industry, with ships and marine products exporting to over 50 countries and regions. Its new yard in the Guangzhou area, Longxue, is already slated to become on of the four largest in China, while what has been described previously as another CSSC world beater yard, Changxing, is now building ships just north of Shanghai, having delivered its first last November. CSSC is the state umbrella organisation of southern Chinese yards. CSIC is its northern counterpart.  [17/04/08]
