Published on 2007-11-22. Author : SpecialChem

Jotun COSCO Marine Coatings (Guangzhou) Co., Ltd, (JCMC) signed contracts for 30 NB's with Jiangsu Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Co., Ltd (old yard) and Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd (new yard), both yards belonging to the Jiangsu yard group. The vessels to be built are:

  • 10 x 2,500 teu for Seaspan Ship Management, Canada.
  • 20 x 4,250 teu for Reederei Rudolf Schepers, Reederei Karl Schulte, Hammonia Reederei and Reederei Thomas Schulte - all from Germany and Seaspan Ship Management - Canada

The vessels will be built at the Jiangsu yard group's two construction sites close to Jiangyin city in the Jiangsu Province, some 200km north-west of Shanghai.

The total volume of marine coatings is 6.85 million litres. This represents the biggest single contract ever signed in the history of Jotun.

JCMC regards this contract as a confirmation of the good and mutually beneficial cooperation between Jotun and the Jiangsu yard group over the last few years.

All the involved owners are known for demanding top quality products for their vessels, and this fact means their choosing and trusting Jotun as paint supplier is even more encouraging and inspiring.

The contract is also a result of lots of excellent work and good cooperation between several people in Jotun China, Jotun Germany and Jotun USA/Canada, as well as our technical service Team No. 1. at the yard, who has performed very professionally and earned the best reputation among the owners and at the yard.
