We are pleased to receive in our yard in June a Thai bulker Thor Nitnirund, a young vessel in their fleet with 61,190 DWT built in 2016.

She visited us after some grounding damaged part of her hull. Many works required for high technique level had been done on her as propeller and shaft maintenance, rudder checking and cleaning, engine overhaul, pipes, and valves renew, repaint hull, steelwork, etc. More than 300 tons of steel had been replaced.

Successful completing to satisfaction of owners in pandemics time is also a commendable effort from our team.

Despite this is the first cooperation between us, the success from this project surely starting forming our partnership



M/V Hai Ha 988 (formerly known as Ocean Queen) recently back to work after months of resting. She is a 53,505 DWT bulk carrier built in 2010. After an overhaul at Nosco Shipyard, she had joined Hai Ha fleet to continue her missions. We are so proud to become a trusted place for many big ships at her size.

During her stay, many of the work had been proceeded, including repainting of hull and cargo hutches, new BWTS installed, valve replacement, cleaning up of tanks, propeller works and others.

We hope this successful project will bring her luck in the long trips coming.

On June 16, 2021, Nosco Shipyard purchased 5 tons of Bac Giang lychee to give to the Company’s employees and local residents. This activity is in response to the call of the Vietnamese Government and the authorities of Quang Ninh and Bac Giang provinces to support the consumption of local agricultural products.

The recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in Bac Giang took place at the time to harvest lychee – a local specialty that is exported to many markets around the world e.g., US, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Europe, etc. with retail price from VND350,000 – 500,000 per kilogram. Besides, the pandemic is getting worse all over the world and Vietnam, which has greatly affected the consume lychee and the life of farmers in Bac Giang province. In order to support Bac Giang province, the Government and provinces across Vietnam simultaneously launched a movement to support and uphold the spirit of Vietnamese people using Vietnamese goods. The purchasing is carried out by the local government of Bac Giang province, controlled and took place in an orderly manner to limit the spread of the COVID-19. It also helps preventing the purchase price falling too low.

We hopes to make a small contribution to share difficulties with farmers, and at the same time, this is also an opportunity for Nosco Shipyard’s employees to enjoy “genuine” Bac Giang lychee, which is fragrant and nutritious.

On October 22, 2020, Department of Labor – Invalids and Social Affairs of Quang Ninh province (“DOLISA”) cooperated with NOSCO Shipyard to conduct a training on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) knowledge for workers at our yard in Quang Ninh (Northern Vietnam).

It is also believed that the training will benefit both of the parties by raising awareness of the workers on sense of responsibility to their works.

In the recent years, OSH is one of the top concerns of the BOD of NOSCO Shipyard to ensure safe working environment and reduce risks of occupational accidents.
