STX launches product tanker in record time

Seoul: STX Shipbuilding launched a 51,000dwt product carrier on Sunday that had been produced using its self-developed non-dock shipbuilding technology called Skid Launching System (SLS). The ship, the 12th vessel this year to be built using the system, was launched after only 30 days of work at STX's Jinhai yard, believed to be the shortest construction period in the world, the company added.  [18/12/06]
