Chongqing leads Yangtze vessel standardisation programme

18 December 2014
Statistics from the Chongqing Port Authorities show that 1,177 vessels of various size and more than 15 years old have been withdrawn from active service, accounting for more than 75 per cent of all registered vessels in Chongqing. This has been achieved through government incentive schemes that have so far paid out Rmb520m.

As a result, the average size of cargo vessel plying the Yangtze and its tributaries in the upper reaches has reached 2,500dwt, while those sailing on the trunkline averaged 3,400dwt. More than 70 per cent of all cargo vessels currently operating in Chongqing have been built in recent years according to the new standards with improved size and low energy consumption.
