Hyundai Heavy, Baoshan Sign MoU

Wednesday, February 15, 2006
Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. disclosed that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Baoshan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. to import wide and heavy plates for shipbuilding. Hyundai Heavy Industries plans to import 180,000 tons of steel plates from Baosteel yearly. Both declined to disclose the price of the deal to keep trade secret. Hyundai Heavy Industries said that the price was lower than that offered by Japanese steelmarkers and a South Korean report said that South Korea would gradually enlarge imports of China- made steel plates for shipbuilding. South Korean shipbuilders mainly bought wide and heavy plates from Japan besides the local supply. But the two sides have had different opinions on pricing since the second half of 2005. South Korean shipbuilders believed that export prices of plates for shipbuilding should be lowered now that the global steel price fell. Japanese plate suppliers pointed out, however, that they could not slash export prices as shipbuilding plates were in short supply in Asian markets.(Source: Earthtimes.org)
