A new life for historic dockyard

The site of the dockyard of Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group in the Pudong New Area is to become a waterfront industrial zone highlighting cutting-edge technologies in 2021, a district official said yesterday.

The 0.65-square-kilometer dockyard built in 1928 by Swedish shipping magnate Eric Moller is now home to one of the major plants building ships for the Chinese navy. The plant will move out in June 2021.

The Jinqiao Group, which is in charge of construction, said the historic buildings of the dockyard along the north section of the Huangpu River will all be preserved.

The redevelopment of the dockyard will take advantage of Hudong-Zhonghua’s resources in marine engineering equipment and oceanic technologies and aims to combine them with 5G and technology, media and telecommunications which Jinqiao takes pride in.
