The coordination and yard supervision of this industry-first project is in the experienced hands of Stena RoRo, a leading tonnage provider for the ferry and ro-ro industry who has been instrumental in this unique Mercy Ships project ever since its inception six years ago.
In the March edition of ShippaxInfo readers will learn more about Stena RoRo's experience of building in China and how different this is from building closer home. The Mercy Ships order was a door-opener to the rest of China and once everything was in place, Stena RoRo was ready to take the next step – the order of the E-Flexers at AVIC Weihai. Weihai will be our next stop and in our next 'China update' we will add a picture of the E-Flexers under construction. The first – yet-unnamed – ship is expected to be floated out in January.
Later this week I will visit North Sea Offshore Technology (NSO), a Yantai-based turnkey accommodation solutions provider that is heavily involved in the outfitting of the public spaces of GLOBAL MERCY. The stop at Yantai will be followed by the naming ceremony of VISBORG in Nansha on Saturday 8 December.
More news from China will follow. Stay tuned.
