Shanghai Shipyard launches gravel laying vessel

Shanghai Shipyard has launched Yihang Jinping 2, a new gravel laying and levelling vessel being built for Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries.

The 98.7- by 66.3-metre Yihang Jinping 2 will be the largest vessel of its kind in the world upon completion and delivery, which are scheduled for July this year.

The vessel has 75-metre legs which can be extended up to 95 metres depending on water depth. This will allow gravel levelling up to a maximum water depth of 40 metres.
