China: CIC Jiangsu Shipyard Carries Out New Undocking Procedure

On April 18th CIC Jiangsu Shipyard Co., Ltd. successfully carried out “six ships floating while three ships undocking” procedure at its No. 2 dry dock, for which the new process of docking the ship by using holding pile was used for the first time. From dock gate float and towage to smooth undocking of three ships the overall process used just 8 hours, which marks a new record of the shortest time for undocking in No. 2 dry dock of China Shipping Industry (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd.

No. 2 dry dock takes the national initiative in introducing the model of simultaneously building six ships in one dock, by which more ships could be undocked and heavy workload could be completed. If traditional two positioning technology would be adopted, the docking accuracy would be affected with more working time, manpower and material resources would be consumed. Therefore, China Shipping Industry (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. decided to introduce docked ship holding pile process, which apparently promoted docking efficiency and better guarantee ship production safety.

The captioned three undocked ships are all 47.500 DWT bulk carriers for ship owners of Ningbo Marine Co., Ltd., Shanghai Friendship Shipping Co., Ltd. and Taihang Shipping Co., Ltd.

China Shipping Industry (Jiangsu) Shipyard Co., is located in the by-river development zone of Jiangdu City, Jiangsu Province. The shipyard was constructed based on the standard of being the leading company in the domestic and the first-class shipbuilding enterprise in the world. The shipbuilding base started its operations in April, 2007. According to the concept of “excelsior Ship building, Digital ship building, Green ship building”, the company set up the modern shipbuilding technical system including cutting & processing prefabrication lines, section block manufacture, integration of hull construction, outfitting and painting etc.

The company became the first one which can build six large-tonnage vessels in one dock simultaneously. China Shipping Industry (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. dedicates itself to the requirements of the ship owners with container ships, product tankers, bulk carriers, chemical tankers, water floating devices and offshore oil drilling platform.
