COSCO Inks Shipbuilding Contract with Dalian Maritime University (China)

Recently, COSCO (Dalian) Shipyard and Dalian Maritime University have entered into a contract valued over RMB325 million (USD 53.2 million) for the construction of one 30,000-dwt cargo and training ship, whose design is based on the 30,000-dwt multipurpose heavy-lift vessel series which COSCO (Dalian) has successfully constructed.

As a self-designed second generation cargo and training ship, the vessel is suitable for carrying bulk cargoes (grain, coal, metal concentrates, salt, sugar, bagged cement, scrap metal, ore), general cargoes (cotton and other crops, coil, wood), as well as engineering parts and containers.

Besides that, the vessel can also be used as a training ship for students taking navigation courses, as well as for scientific research and testing in relevant fields such as transportation engineering, navigation and marine engineering. The vessel measures 199.8 metres in LOA, 27.8 metres in breadth, 15.5 metres in height, has a design draft of 10.3 metres, a cruising speed of 17.5 knots and an endurance of 15,000 nautical miles. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2015.
