Korean Shipbuilders Place in Top 10 for June Orders

Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Korean shipbuilders occupied seven out of the top 10 positions in the world last month in terms of orders. Hyundai Heavy Industries was the world’s largest shipyard in terms of order backlog as of late June with 11.74 million compensated gross tons (CGT), British shipbuilding market researcher Clarkson reported. Samsung Heavy Industries came second with an order backlog of 8.27 million CGTs, followed by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) with 7.41 million CGTs and Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co., one of two Hyundai Heavy Industries subsidiaries, with 4.11 million CGTs. Created after a merger of two shipyards in Dalian, China’s Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Corp. made a huge leap up the list to take fifth place with 2.84 million CGTs, beating Korean rivals Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries Co., the other Hyundai Heavy subsidiary, STX Shipbuilding Co. and Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Co. Another Chinese shipyard, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. ranked 10th with 1.84 CGTs. The combined order backlogs of seven Korean shipyards were 39.15 million CGTs as of late June, accounting for a 34.5 percent share of the global total worth 113.64 million CGTs. (Source: Chosun Ilbo)
