Belgian firm orders ships made in Subic

Spurring the shipbuilding industry in the country, Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction-Philippines (HHIC-Phil) christened two newly built 3,800 TEU container carriers ordered by Belgian shipping firm Delphis inside the Redondo Peninsula last month.

Christened as “M/V Perceiver” and “M/V Conceiver,” the two ships proudly Philippine-made at the 300-hectare state-of-the-art Subic shipyard facility in Redondo, will beef up the operations of Delphis.

The event was graced by HHIC-Phils Inc. senior officials led by President Jin Kyu Ahn, top executives of Delphis and representatives from classification society DNV-GL.

“These new container carriers are well equipped with the latest technological advancement in shipbuilding. The occasion is yet another milestone for us because it affirms Hanjin’s unwavering commitment to innovation,” Ahn said. (Jonas Reyes, Manila Bulletin)
