A 367-meter-long Danish container ship named Grete Maersk with a loading capacity of 115,000 tonnes went aground off Vung Tau coast in southern Vietnam Tuesday morning when it was on the way to Malaysia.
During his first visit to Vietnam last week, A.P. Moller-Maersk Group chief executive officer Nils Smedegaard Andersen told VIR about the group's strong commitment to Vietnam's growth and development of the country’s shipping industry.
Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has today announced that it is to develop the largest ship lift in Asia, at a new repair yard near Hai Phong, Vietnam. This follows a decision to extend the Syncrolift ship lift currently being installed, which will be capable of docking Panamax size commercial ships.
OOCL, which is a member of the Grand Alliance along with Hapag-Lloyd and NYK Line, said its services, KTX 1, 2 and 3, which provide connections to Southeast Asian ports through Japan, continue to operate normally.
