Jinling mega block floated to new location in dock

It was a spectacular sight when this huge mega block of our new ro-ro ships was moved to a different location in the dock at the Jinling Shipyard in China. As no crane would be able to lift the giant, it was floated on water to its new position as can be seen in the picture. This happened at the same time as water was let into the dock so that another ship could be docked out (this ship was not built for DFDS).

And everything looks great. Construction is progressing according to plan and the ship is expected to be delivered at the beginning of 2019.  The next ship is also in process and steel plates are currently being welded together into smaller sections.

Thanks to Jens Baltsersen who sent us the pictures, which were taken by our colleagues in China, Jeppe H Pedersen and Frane Pilic.
