Xin Yue Feng: Growth with a Range of Vessels


Cummins Vessel Reference #762

The Cummins Swissco Garnet powered by a pair of Cummins KTA50-M2 mains producing a total of 3200 HP.

From the four-story office tower, housing 100 technical engineers and administration staff, to the 65,000-square-meter yard with extensive fabrication and machine shops and a huge dry dock, the Xin Yue Feng Shipyard has been building every more sophisticated vessels. Although the majority of the yard’s work is in steel, they maintain a set of skilled aluminum workers as well. In mid-March this group was building a small aluminum service vessel for a Singapore customer. Over in the yard’s assembly and launch dock, four big DP2 anchor handlers were in various stages from fabrication with the aide of an overhead gantry crane. Nearby another AHT was being finished at the fitting out dock.

Also in the water, and awaiting delivery by ship to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, were two 15-meter and one 12-meter line handling or mooring boats. Each of these is powered by a pair of Cummins NT855 each delivering 261 kW at 1800 RPM. Back in the office block the walls are lined with photos of recently delivered vessels. Shipyard Chairman Mr. Luo Chaoneng points out the 39.8 by 10.5-meter BADR 5, delivered this year to a Saudi Arabian customer. A pair of Cummins QSK19-M engines each producing 597 kW at 1800-RPM powers this handy-sized tug.

The yard has delivered a number of smaller aluminum vessels and has plans for a 40-meter crew boat.

Nearby sporting a hefty knuckle-boom is a picture of the 34 by 10-meter anchor handling tugs Swissco Garnet. Delivered this past January, the AHT has a molded depth of4.7 meters. Classed by BV it received the notation [1 +HULL +MACH, tug, Special service – Anchor Handling, Unrestricted Navigation]. Powered by a pair of Cummins KTA50-M2 mains producing a total of 3200 HP to give the boat a 40-ton bollard pull and 11-knot speed. The Swissco Garnet is a repeat order and sister ship to the Swissco Opal delivered in 2013.


The Bader 5 is powered by a pair of Cummins QSK19-M shortly before leaving the yard for her Saudi owners.

As a privately owned shipyard since 2006, the Xin Yue Feng Shipyard exhibits a professionalism and dedication to quality that is earning repeat orders from some of the worlds leading off-shore companies. This international reputation is reflected in the company web site at:
