The smooth construction of N986 has been supported by the Shipowner Company, Ship Design Institute, Project Supervision team, BV Classification Society, Shanghai Pudong Development Bank and other relevant units. Here, on behalf of Yangzhou CHI. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and high respect to all parties involved in this project.
