One was handed over at the northern Quang Ninh province-based Ha Long Shipyard and the other at the Nam Tieu Shipyard in the northern province of Hai Phong.
They were the first among 27 vessels built under the contract between the UK’s Graig Investment Limited and the two Vinashin subsidiaries.
Denmark’s Carl Bro Group designed the two 53,000-ton cargo ships, which were built under the supervision of the Norwegian registration agency DNV.
According to the Minister of Transport and Communication Ho Nghia Dung, the building of the two vessels is the most outstanding event of the shipbuilding industry in 2007, strengthening Vinashin’s world position.
