The China Navigation Company (CNCo) has ordered its first self-discharging cement carrier on the back of a partnership deal with Golden Bay Cement. The vessel will be built at China’s Jinling shipyard and will be specially designed to operate on the New Zealand coast.
CNCo’s industrial shipping division, Swire Bulk Logistics, is partnering with Golden Bay Cement to build, own and operate the 9000 dwt cement carrier. The vessel is scheduled to commence operations in late 2016.
“This partnership (with GBC) reinforces CNCo’s commitment to developing New Zealand’s coastal shipping industry, and is critical in supporting the country’s infrastructural development,” said Chris Blake, country manager of CNCo.
