China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) has splashed its first smart ship, the 38,800-metric ton bulk carrier Great Smart, in late October when the vessel departed the shipyard for sea trials.

The bulker started its week-long trials on October 31 in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province, the state-owned shipbuilder informed.

Great Smart, which is a modified version of the Green Dolphin fuel-efficient bulk carrier concept, is set to be handed over to an undisclosed shipowner by the end of 2017.

It was awarded the “cybersafe”, “cyber-perform” and “cyber-maintain” smart-vessel notations by the UK classification society Lloyd’s Register, as well as the “intelligent ship” notation from China Classification Society.

The vessel was designed by Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute and built in Guangzhou by Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of CSSC.
