Shanghai Waigaoqiao delivers first Chinese NYK vessel

Shanghai Waigaoqiao delivers first Chinese NYK vessel

Tokyo: Shipping giant Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) has taken delivery of the first vessel to be ordered from a Chinese shipyard. The new 175,000dwt bulk carrier, named the Ocean Crescent (pictured), was constructed by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding. The vessel, co-owned by NYK and Mitsui & Co Ltd, will currently be assigned on a voyage-by-voyage basis for the transport of specific cargo for clients around the world.

NYK has ordered three additional vessels with the same specifications from the yard, as well as two 300,000dwt bulk carriers and a second VLCC from Nantong Cosco KHI Engineering - the company took delivery of the first VLCC earlier this month.  [23/05/07]
