The 300,000 DWT VLOC “Mafadi” was Delivered 15 Days in Advance

    

On May 30th, the 300,000 DWT VLOC No. 4 named as “Mafadi” was delivered 15 days in advance at 10 am in the morning. The VLOC is constructed by GSI, a subsidiary of CSSC. It is a milestone success for GSI to achieve the work of improving efficiency and lower the cost as well as eliminating the phenomena of the fine ship caused by the deferral. In recognition of GSI’s construction quality, the company BERGE BULK also gave a reward of 10,000 US dollars.
It is understood that GSI has delivered a total of 8 ships (including special ships) of various types of ships in this year, and all of them were delivered during the contract period, among which the shipowners were rewarded several times. After the operation of this ship, it will mainly serve the shipping economy development of Singapore along the “One Belt and One Road” countries. As a member of the leader team that actively implements “One Belt and One Road” initiative.
As a member of the “National Team” that actively implements the national “Belt and Road” initiative, GSI has already accomplished many projects including its own ship in several countries along the “One Belt and One Road”.
The VLOC has a total length of 327 meters, a width of 57 meters, a depth of 28.7 meters, a design draft of 21.4 meters. It also can carry 300,000 DWT ore for offshore transportation. It is one of the largest bulk tonnage bulk carriers built in South China. Its deck area exceeds 16,000 square meters, which is equivalent to 2.2 standard football field sizes. The VLOC has six large cargo holds, and each of them can carry about 50,000 tons of cargo, which are equivalent to the transportation of 500 super heavy trucks.
This type of ship is the first ship type to be sprayed with large-package coatings by GSI. The large-scale coatings are also used for spraying the anti-fouling paint of No. 4 and the interior coating of the ship. Applying large-scale coating is one of the prevention and control actions in 2019 and 2020, which are proposed by CSSC and implement by GSI. The application of large-scale coatings can reduce hundreds of disposable iron drums each time, which can greatly reduce the generation of disposable iron drums and avoid the problem of dangerous waste accumulation and disposal. The application of large-package coatings can reduce hundreds of disposable iron drums each time, which can greatly reduce the generation of disposable iron drums and avoid the problem of dangerous waste accumulation and disposal. At the same time, large-scale coatings can also reduce the waste of residual coatings in paint buckets, which can reduce environmental pollution to a certain extent and reduce coating costs.
