  • Description

    MR KHRUSHCHEV WAS IN GOTHENBURG, THE SWEDISH PORT, YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) TO SEE THE LAUNCHING OF A SHIP BUILT FOR THE SOVIET UNION. HIS WIFE, NINA, SMASHED THE CHAMPAGNE BOTTLE TO SEND THE 7,800-TON REFRIGERATOR VESSEL DOWN THE SLIPWAY.

    THE SHIPYARD, WHERE THE FREIGHTER WAS LAUNCHED, IS ONLY A YEAR OLD. IT IS DESIGNED ON NEW LINES AND HAS ATTRACTED WIDE INTERNATIONAL INTEREST. IT HAS FACILITIES TO BUILD SHIPS UP TO 150,000 TONS.

    THE YARD HAS FOUR BUILDING BERTHS, THREE FLOATING DOCKS, A FOUNDRY AND ENGINEERING WORKS.

    YESTERDAY'S LAUNCHING WAS THE THIRD OF FOUR REFRIGERATED SHIPS GOTHENBURG IS BUILDING FOR THE SOVIET UNION. THE FOURTH IS WELL ADVANCED, AS IS THE OTHER OF TWO 27,000-TON FLOATING DOCKS ALSO BEING CONSTRUCTED FOR THE SOVIET UNION.

    MR KHRUSHCHEV, WHO WAS IN A GENIAL MOOD, SAID THAT CURRENTLY 152 SHIPS WERE BEING BUILT FOR THE SOVIET UNION BY FOREIGN SHIPYARDS. AT THE SAME TIME, SOVIET YARDS WERE WORKING TO CAPACITY.
