The vessel has been built by Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) in China and is currently the second-largest vessel in the market with a deadweight of 98,000 tonnes.
The development of this new flagship of the heavy transport division of Cosco Shipping is the result of a close cooperation between Cosco, GSI and Vuyk. The three companies already share a long history, which began with the development of Cosco’s K-class vessels in 1997.
