Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd (SWS) opened in 1999. Situated on the southern coast at the mouth
of the Yangtze River in Shanghai, it is jointly owned by China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), Shanghai
Bao Steel Group Inc., Shanghai Electrical Group Corporation and China Shipbuilding Trading Co., Ltd, with CSSC
holding more than 50% of the shares.
The shipyard has its own design company, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Marine Design & Research Institute. In October

carriers, FPSOs and offshore platforms.
The shipyard designs and builds all types of ultra large, high-tech ships as well as offshore structures. It has four
production centres for steel cutting and fabrication, flat panel assembling, curved panel assembling and blasting
and painting, working on 15 ships simultaneously.
The self-innovated 170K DWT Green Capesize Bulk Carrier has become the top-selling brand of Chinese vessel
due to its high domestic sales and large share of the international market. The 110K DWT Aframax Crude Oil
Tanker has been honoured with the award of “Chinese Celebrated Brand”. Another self-innovated product,
the 300K DWT FPSO, elevated China into the world’s top ranks in FPSO engineering, design and construction.
The semi-submersible drilling platform with a working depth of 3,000 meters is a cutting-edge, sixth-generation
product that fills the gap in mega-sized deep water offshore engineering equipment manufacturing. Under
construction in SWS are LPG/Ethylene/LNG carriers, jack-up rigs, Capesize bulk carriers, and VLCCs: the
company also undertakes contracts of 82K bulk carriers and developing 10K TEU containerships and other large
