The Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co Ltd undocked another major vessel on Friday, at its Shanghai-based shipyard.

The company, which is owned by China State Shipbuilding Corporation, or CSSC, has been undocking ships at a speed of two a month during the past year.

On Friday, the company undocked a container ship with a capacity of 7,000 TEUs, or 20-foot equivalent container units.

The vessel was the seventh of that type to have been built for Canada-based Seaspan Corp.

A total of 111 vessels have been undocked at Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding's No 2 dock so far, including seven FPSO – or floating production, storage and offloading vessels – eight jack-up drilling platforms, seven 7,000-TEU container ships, one 18,000-TEU container ship, 22 bulk carriers, seven ultra-large ore carriers, seven refined oil tankers, 51 crude oil tankers, and the first domestically made large cruise ship, which was named Adora Magic City.

The company said the nation's second homegrown large cruise ship will soon be built at the same dock.
