After the success of last year’s Graig100 charity bike ride through the Welsh mountains, the big question for organiser Chris Williams was: can we raise more than six figures?
The ULSTEIN TWIN X-STERN named ULSTEIN SX221 Diamond SOV will support the UK’s ambitious target of 50GW of offshore wind energy generation by 2030 - as part of its Net Zero Strategy.
"Naval architect, newbuilding project manager and Mandarin speaker Jonathan Kingdon has taken up the post from his base in Shanghai, where he also heads the Asia operation of Graig's marine inspection company Idwal".
"About 250 guests joined chief executive Hugh Williams and his brother Chris, Graig's commercial director, at the Exchange Hotel, on the site where Welsh coal was traded for export until the 1970s".
"The event, which raised more than £37,000 ($51,000), was held to mark the 100th anniversary of UK-based shipowner Graig Shipping".
"The UK company placed the order in conjunction with what it describes as its “collaboration partner” — Jordan National Shipping Lines (JNSL) — which, it is understood, will be the end-user of the 63,000-dwt ships".
"Graig Shipping chief executive Hugh Williams says the transaction is an outstanding opportunity that gives his company the chance of significant growth with the support of the global leader in the shipmanagement business".
"Graig Shipping, a historic name in the UK market, is not part of the deal and will focus on developing, financing, and executing innovative shipping investment opportunities and structures, a statement explains".
