She features an unobstructed deck space of up to 211m by 68m and is fully redundant including industry leading DP2 systems.
The m/v Xin Guang Hua has already secured multiple contracts including Shell’s Appomattox hull, which will be transported from South Korea to Ingleside, Texas in 2017.
Captain Han Guo Min, CEO of COSCO Shipping Specialized Carriers Co. Ltd in Guangzhou, states that “despite an overall weak market due primarily to low oil prices, COSCO is encouraged by the reception this vessel has received by the market”.
The m/v Xin Guang Hua is a market-changing vessel that is large enough to transport fully integrated offshore floating production units weighing up to 85,000 tons.
