Philippines’ Largest Ship

A Japanese-Filipino joint venture has built the biggest sea vessel that will have ever sailed from a Philippine port, the Tenshu Maru, which is a 287-meter (950-foot), 180,000-ton bulk carrier. The vessel was built from the shipyard in the central port of Cebu for the Japanese firm Chijin Shipping SA and will be registered in Panama. Tsuneishi Heavy Industries is a joint venture between Tokyo's Tsuneishi Group and Cebu-based Aboitiz Group. The firm builds bulk carriers as well as truck and car carriers for clients worldwide, and said it was fully booked for orders until 2013. (
