SWS refreshes Chinese record

On January 21st, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS) delivered two-unit 176,000dwt Capesize bulk carriers. So far, the output and delivery volume of SWS in January reached 1.001m dwt, which refreshed Chinese monthly output and delivery record.

On January 6th, SWS delivered 176,000dwt Capesize ships to American General Ore successfully. On 11th, a 297,000dwt VLCC was delivered to Greek Dynacom. On 15th, another 176,000dwt Capesize ship was delivered to German Orion. On 20th, two more 176,000dwt Capesize ships were taken by General Ore and Greek Gleamary respectively.

As is introduced, SWS delivered five ships totally in January. The shortest construction period in dock among them was just 76 days.

As is know, in spite of amazing accomplishments in recent years, Chinese shipyards still had a long way to go compared to Korean and Japanese rivals, especially in management level.

The new Chinese monthly delivery record done by SWS showed that Chinese top shipbuilders were able to do an excellent both in volume and efficiency.
