Đà Nẵng — The defence ministry and the Sông Thu Shipyard Corporation launched a multi-purpose vessel, CBS 8005, for the Việt Nam Coast Guard Force at a ceremony yesterday.

It’s the second ship that the Đà Nẵng-based corporation in co-operation with Damen Group from the Netherlands has built for the Coast Guard Force to improve law enforcement on the sea.

The ship was one of seven large vessels the government had invested in to build a powerful Việt Nam Coast Guard Force by 2020.

The CSB 8005 ship, which is 91m long and 14m wide, is the most modern convenience ship capable of carrying 2,500 deadweight tonnage (DWT) and working 40 days and nights over 5,000 nautical miles.

The local ship builder has built more than 40 vessels for export, including fast crew supply ships, rescue ships, salvage tugs and drive tugs, besides patrol boats, for the Middle East, South America, Europe and South Africa, as well as the domestic market. — VNS
