Sinopacific Shipbuilding Group (Sinopacific) held a christening ceremony at its Dayang Shipyard on Thursday, May 14th for a newly built Ultramax CROWN 63® ordered by Greek owner Angelakos (Hellas) S.A.
As the Godmother, Madam Grace Yang, the wife of former Chinese Ambassador to Greece christened this new vessel as “Sinica Graeca”, where Sinica means China in old Greek.
Sinica Graeca is the first of a series of 4 bulk carriers contracted by Angelakos (Hellas) S.A. It is also the first time for the Greek shipping company to ink an order with a Chinese shipbuilder.
Sinopacific’s CROWN 63® design focuses on optimizing technology and innovation by reducing fuel consumption; cutting total weight to create a ‘light-ship’ and introduction of a mechanical and electrical configuration with a focus on environmental protection.
CROWN 63® meets all the requirements of the latest international conventions and norms, including CSR and PSPC, the shipbuilder said.
“The essence of detail is determined by uncompromising efforts. We cherish details, and we cherish trust worldwide even more. I’m very proud to say that the vessel to be delivered is an example of what people who desire to do great things can achieve when they unite with respect for their differences with a professional and positive attitude to working and cooperating together,”comments Simon Liang, Chairman and CEO of Sinopacific.
