First domestically-made oceangoing vessel will be launched within the next month. The ship is being built in Iran Shipbuilding and Offshore Industries Complex (ISOICO) yard.

In addition to building the ship, ISOICO is currently working on a project to build four other vessels, the Persian service of Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) reported on Wednesday.

Also, the shipbuilding complex has managed to repair a total of 11 vessels during the past two months; seven of the vessels were Iranian and four of them belonged to foreign companies.

Moreover, ISOICO has on its agenda to build six 2,000-ton barges as well as two landing crafts. The project is already 60 percent complete.

Furthermore, in a $510m contract signed with the domestic shipbuilding complex, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Shipping Line (IRISL) has ordered the manufacture of 16 vessels for its fleet, the report further said.
