Qingshan Shipyard to transform into a port

Sinotrans & CSC affiliated Qingshan Shipyard has gained a permit from Wuhan Port Authority to operate as a port business.

According to a new business certificate issued to Qingshan Shipyard, the shipyard’s two docks will be used for cargo handling and warehousing operations.

In September, the struggling shipyard confirmed that it is going to quit the shipbuilding business after it completes on hand orders. The shipyard was also in negotiations with domestic container shipping company Zhonggu Shipping to convert the shipyard into an intermodal container distribution centre.

Qingshan Shipyard currently has three ships under construction including two 64,000 dwt bulkers for Oldendorff Carriers and one 43,000 dwt bulker for Phoenix Shipping and Trading.
