SMC has signed a supervision agreement with Transocean Maritime Agencies (TMA), Monaco, right after the Chinese New Year. SMC will support TMA’s site supervision for two 82,000 DWT bulk carriers; a newbuilding project in Jinling Shipyard, China. Steel cutting for the first vessel started from February 2018 and delivery for the last vessel is scheduled for April 2019.
TMA is a private, family-controlled shipowning company, specialising in bulk carriers, with 17 vessels currently under their fleet. SMC started cooperation with TMA in 2013 and has already supervised four vessels with same type in Jinling Shipyard two years ago. TMA was very satisfied with the services provided and therefore entrusted this project to SMC.
