Construction Commences on 210,000-Ton LNG Dual-Fuel Bulk Carrier by Beihai Shipbuilding for Mitsui O.S.K. Lines
On the afternoon of December 26, the opening ceremony of the 39th ship (BC210K-39#) of the 210,000-ton LNG dual-fuel bulk carrier project built by China Shipbuilding Group Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. was held in the joint factory building of the company. Hino Kei, deputy general manager of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (China) Co., Ltd., the shipowner representative, pressed the cutting start button.
This ship is the first ship in a series of ships built by Beihai Shipbuilding in cooperation with MOL, and it is also a dual-fuel ship type built by Beihai Shipbuilding again after the "H-Line" project in South Korea. The design of this type of ship has a total length of 300 meters, a beam of 50 meters, a draft of 25.2 meters, and a structural draft of 18.4 meters. It has made adjustments and optimizations in the local structure and overall layout compared to the H-Line project ships. As a new generation of "green and environmentally friendly" ship type independently developed by Beihai Shipbuilding, it has successfully entered the mainstream shipping market in Japan and South Korea with better fuel/gas economy and low emissions advantages. It has achieved mass production of 210,000-ton LNG dual-fuel bulk carriers and improved the company's market share and competitiveness in the new energy bulk carrier market.
After the project starts, the company will continue to practice the "win-win-win" concept, strengthen process control, continuously improve management level, comprehensively improve value creation ability, and aim to "satisfy customers" to complete the delivery target on time and with good quality.
