Hunan Xiangchuan Shipbuilding sets up yard and repair base in Zhoushan

China’s Hunan Xiangchuan Shipbuilding Industry has set up a new shipyard and repair base in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province to expand its footprint locally.

Xiangchuan Shipbuilding had already built over 100 ships for the city of Zhoushan and Zhejiang province. The shipbuilding and repair base in Zhoushou will allow the company to better service the regional market, said Xu Ju Lin, general manager of Xiangchuan Shipbuilding. The company aims to optimise its products structure and develop new types of environmentally-friendly vessels.

Zhoushan is one of the top shipbuilding and repair centers in China. Its annual shipbuilding capacity is over 10m dwt.


The state-owned Hunan Xiangchuan Shipbuilding Industry, previously known as ChangSha Shipbuilding, was established in 1950. Key products of the company include high-speed passenger ships, roro vessels, maritime patrol ships and coast guard ships.
