(Posted on 09/08/20)
M.V. ROKNOOR-32, a General Cargo vessel, built under the classification of the Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass), was successfully launched from the Delta Shipyard in Chattogram, Bangladesh. Ordered by Unichart Navigation Limited, M.V. ROKNOOR-32 is the first in the series of five vessels and is also the first Bangladesh flag vessel being constructed under IRClass.
The launch follows closely on several other vessels which were built under IRClass’ classification and successfully delivered during this unprecedented global pandemic. It underpins IRClass’ dedication and proven track record to fulfil clients’ needs, ensuring that work carries on even during these unpredictable times.
Executive Director of Delta Shipyard, Mr. Syed Monzur Hossain said: “We will like to thank IRClass for all the support provided during this pandemic. The timely approval of plans allowed the construction to proceed smoothly and the team’s unsurpassed attention to detail ensured that any issues were resolved early on in the process.”
M.V. ROKNOOR-32 is approximately 82.5m long with the capacity of 3200DWT and is designed to meet the latest IMO conventions and codes for worldwide operations.
Mr. Amit Bhatnagar, Regional Manager East Coast of India and Bangladesh for IRClass commented: “I am delighted with our team in Bangladesh who have worked tirelessly during this period to facilitate the successful construction and launch of the vessel. The team has been very committed from the start and quickly adapted to the “new normal” of safety measures, implemented to allow safe operations for both our clients and surveyors.”
