HÀ NỘI — The Phà Rừng Shipyard Company under the Vinashin Group on Friday handed over to a South Korean partner a 6,500DWT oil tanker following a contract signed in 2016.
The oil tanker, coded BS01 and named ‘YN YEOSU’, is 109.4m long and 18.2m wide, and can hold up to 7,700 cubic metres of goods. It is designed for 18 crewmembers.
