New Shipbuilding Orders Mushroom


Korean shipbuilding firms have been enjoying a flood of new contracts in the second quarter this year. Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), have been getting new shipbuilding orders for various value-added products, such as offshore plants, LNG carriers, and super-large container carriers.

The DSME said that they won a US$426 million contract from Chevron-Texaco (USA) to supply an offshore platform. Their total new orders this year included five LNG carriers and eight tankers, worth more than US$1.6 billion in total.
