The new owner of bankrupt STX Dalian, Hengli, is refitting the old STX plants after it took over yard assets month earlier.

The overgrown plant of STX Dalian have stopped operation around 10 years ago and all the inner and outer facilities need to be reconstructed.

Hengli started yard refitting right after the day it acquired the shipyard assets and had deployed 3,000 workers at the site to rebuild it.

We are concentrating all our efforts to accelerate the renovation of STX Dalian’s old plant and will resume operation for the construction of equipment and offshore engineering shortly, said Lu Kun, general manager of Hengli Heavy Industry.

Hengli is expecting to complete refitting within 45 days and has initiated the personnel recruitment for reopening of the plant as quickly as possible.
