China’s shipbuilder Avic Dingheng has delivered Asphalt Synergy, a 37,000 dwt asphalt carrier, to US-based transportation company Valt.

The delivery and naming ceremony for the newbuilding was held in Yangzhou on January 9, 2018.

Asphalt Synergy is a sister vessel to Asphalt Splendor, which was built at the abovementioned shipyard in 2015.

The 36,058 cbm vessel features a length of 179.9 meters and a width of 30.6 meters. Currently, its market value is USD 44.61 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.
