Qinzhou, September 9 (Jiang Ruiqing He Changhai) On September 29, Guangxi's first newly built 9,29-ton ship "NORD GABON" was delivered at the Qinzhou base of CSSC Guangxi Company, and was towed to the outer anchorage loading point with the assistance of the "Hai Patrol 10252" escort and three tugs, and loaded and transported to Africa by the semi-submersible ship "Huashenglong".
The delivery of the aforementioned ships fills the gap that Guangxi's shipbuilding industry has no exports to overseas countries, and also reflects the improvement of the function of industrial radiation driven by the construction of a new land-sea channel in the west, which will provide a strong driving force for Guangxi's development to the sea.
