Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) said its two affiliates have sealed deals to build six vessels worth US$293M in total
HHI said Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) has won a newbuild order for four 1,800-TEU container ships from Evergreen Marine Corporation for a total US$95M.
The 172 m long and 27.4 m wide vessels will be built to the Con-Green design developed by HMD, MAN Energy Solutions and DNV GL in HMD’s Ulsan shipyard beginning 2021.
HMD said it will further diversify the line-up of its products and focus on securing orders for medium-sized container ships.
Another subsidiary, Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries won an order worth US$189M to build two VLCCs for an unidentified Asian shipper. This follows a US$94M deal in October for a new VLCC from an unnamed European company.
The group has seen impressive returns this year, winning orders worth US$12Bn to build 135 vessels including 22 container ships, 29 crude carriers, 36 product carriers, 23 LNG carriers and 17 LPG ships.
