The Myanma Shipyards-AMECC Joint Venture Co Ltd, between Myanma Shipyards and Vietnam’s Dong A Shipping Industry, will build six vessels and repair 10 in the six months from October 1 to March 31. All offers for the next shipbuilding projects are from local private owners in Myanmar. Ship vessels are built according to the criteria of the Classification Societies (ClassNK)
The six vessels to be built in next six months are four 30-metre fishing trawlers, one 36-passenger vessel, and one 70m oil barge. The company is building the four trawlers starting this year under eight-month contracts. The company is also repairing two passenger vessels, two oil tankers, one offshore utility vessel, one buoy-laying vessel, two steel yachts, one recreation river vessel, and an oil barge. It is also repairing four cruise ships, two 25-metre harbour tugs, one offshore accommodation barge, and a recreation river vessel.
The joint venture delivered a US$2.2-million multi-functional buoy-handling vessel, the “BH-101,” to the Directorate of Water Resources and Improvement of River Systems on July 27. The Joint Venture was signed in 2015, and it started operations that October. Its name was changed to Myanma Shipyards-AMECC Joint Venture Co Ltd to build and repair commercial vessels in 2017. The company has built 38 vessels in four years.
