PANO - Ha Long One-member Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., under the Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Corporation, has successfully launched two troop-carrier ships Roro 5612 numbered No.1 and No.2 for the Venezuelan Navy.
Roro 5612, designed and equipped by the Dutch Damen Group, was built for the Latin American (Venezuela) country under the supervision of the French register DV.
With a length of 57.27m, width of 12m, water displacement of 600 tons, and speed of 10.4 knots per hour, the ship is tasked with transporting supplies to islands, and can carry light amphibious armored vehicles.
