Orient Shipyard (CEO Cheon Soo Hye) located in Gupyeongdong, Saha-gu, Busan announced that it delivered its first constructed ship to the ship-owner Sunwoo ST at the Busan dock on the 30th of the month.
This ship, delivered within four months after it had been named Ocean World last June, is a 33,300 DWT bulk carrier with an overall length of 178.9m, height of 14.2m, and breadth of 28.8m.
An official at Orient Shipyard said, “This ship delivery means a lot to us because small and medium sized shipbuilders are experiencing difficulties, such as order cancellations and postponed delivery schedules, these days,” and added, “With this first ship delivery, we became recognized as a real shipbuilding company.”
Meanwhile, Orient Shipyard is going to deliver the second constructed ship, ordered by Jinyang Shipping, this coming October.
