July 14, 2020

On the afternoon of July 11, GP's first 64K DWT bulk carrier N806 built by COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry (Yangzhou) Co., Ltd. has successfully completed the sea trial.

During the construction of the N806 ship, it was affected by the epidemic situation in China at the early stage.

In order to ensure the resumption of work and production of the ship, the ship owner promptly sent manufacturing supervisors to China, optimized the inspection application process, and ensured the smooth construction of the ship.

Affected by the international epidemic, the crew could not come to China in the later period. Therefore, COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry (Yangzhou) Co., Ltd. strengthened communication with GP company and took the initiative to contact the crew in China for the ship owner, making the Ship N806 start its sea trial on July 6.
