From LNG to Arctic travel: Bureau Veritas takes Asia
At the forefront of China’s expanding cruise market is China Merchants Heavy Industry (CMHI), who recently delivered the first ever Chinese-built, Polar-class expedition cruise ship, part of SunStone’s order for a series of INFINITY-class vessels.
This month’s Veristar Mag shines a spotlight on some of the most innovative projects underway in the Far East, including the first-ever Chinese-built cruise expedition vessel and two major LNG-powered vessels.
In early 2020, CMA CGM is set to deliver the first of a new series LNG-powered, ultra-large containerships, built by Chinese shipyards Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding and Shanghai Jiangnan-Changxing Shipbuilding.
