FKAB Completes 3rd Ship Conversion for ZPMC

Swedish marine engineering company Fartygskonstruktioner AB (FKAB) has completed the conversion of MV Zhen Hua 32 from a bulk carrier to a heavy deck cargo ship. 

Owned by China-based ZPMC’s Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited, the converted ship is now able to carry large equipment such as bridge container crane by roll on roll off method.

The 2000-built vessel features a length of 235 meters and a width of 43 meters.

This is the third conversion carried out by FKAB for ZPMC.

At the beginning of 2015, the company converted an Aframax tanker to a semi-submersible heavy lift vessel.

The second conversion started in mid-2015 and included MV Zhen Hua 31, a bulk carrier which was converted to a bridge crane and large equipment carrier.
