COSCO Shipyard Group, the 51% owned subsidiary of COSCO Corporation, has seven major shipyards in China, located in Dalian, Nantong, Zhoushan, Guangdong, Shanghai, Lianyungang, and Qidong. Strategically situated along China’s coastline, these shipyards provide an extensive array of advanced capabilities in ship building, ship repair and conversion, and offshore marine engineering. This segment remained company’s biggest revenue contributor in FY2010, making up 96.3% of group revenue. Turnover from shipyard operations recorded a 35.2% rise to $3.7 billion in 2010, due to higher revenue contributions from ship building and marine engineering projects.
