BYD's ship is coming: it can transport 7,000 units at a time BYD Ro-Ro Carrier No. 1 was successfully tested
In recent years, with the comprehensive layout of BYD's overseas plan, BYD's sales in overseas markets are also increasing, which has brought a new problem, that is, the ocean transportation of vehicles. To this end, BYD spent 5 billion yuan earlier to build its own ro-ro fleet. Now, there is new news about BYD ro-ro ships. On December 4, according to BYD's official news, BYD's ro-ro transport ship EXPLORER 1 successfully completed a seven-day sea trial in Yantai, Shandong.
According to previous information, the BYD dual-fuel PCTC ship is upgraded from the Guangzhou Shipyard International PCTC series ship, which has a total length of 199.9 meters, a width of 38 meters, a design draft of 9 meters, a design speed of 18.5 knots, and can carry 7,000 vehicles. The ship adopts a natural gas/fuel oil dual-fuel propulsion system, and is equipped with a battery system and shaft generator, which is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly.
At the beginning of last month, Guangzhou Shipyard International also announced that the No. 1 ship of the BYD 7000 dual-fuel vehicle carrier (PCTC) project it undertook started construction in Nansha, Guangzhou, and a total of 2 ships are planned to be built.
According to earlier news, as early as last year, it was reported that BYD signed an order for 8 ro-ro ships with a shipyard in Yantai, Shandong, which can carry 7,700 vehicles and the total order price is nearly 5 billion yuan. Together, BYD will have an ocean-going fleet of 10 ro-ro vessels, which will greatly enhance its ability to supply overseas.
In fact, in addition to ocean shipping, BYD is also comprehensively promoting overseas factory construction plans, with the full acceleration of BYD's overseas plan, BYD's overseas sales will reach a new high next year, we will wait and see.
