That means YIULIAN Shipyard has opened up the largest dock repair vessel since it was established.


TI EUROPE, which comes from EURONAV NV of Belgium, is the largest sailing Ultra Large Crude Carrier(ULCC) in the world. The giant is 380 meters long, 68 meters wide and 34 meters deep, with a DWT of 441561 tons. This dock repair is its third special survey and including some regular repairs in which has about 20,000 square meters full blasting to SA 2.0 and silicone painting in vertical bottom of hull, that needs YIULIAN Shipyard to be extremely strict in construction process, and provide high-tech standard and long docking time. Furthermore, it puts a higher and more stringent requirement on the shipyard’s equipment and staff’s ability to control the process. Guided with the elaborate planning made by leaders at all levels, YIULIAN Shipyard completed all repair works in high quality and high standard as scheduled. TI EUROPE successfully sailed out from the shipyard at 6:58 am on September 21, and once again starts its new voyage.
