STX in Deal for Naval Test Ship

Monday, June 15, 2009

STX Offshore & Shipbuilding received an order for a next generation naval test ship from Agency for Defense Development (ADD).

The ship will support marine weapon system tests and conducts environmental surveys on the test sea area.

The vessel, worth around $359m, weighs 1,200 tons and is able to accommodate about 30 people.

The ship, with 4,000 nautical miles, is scheduled to be delivered to ADD in May 2012.

Do Jong-chil, director of STX O&S Specialized Ship Division, said, “Despite severe market conditions, good results were achieved thanks to diversified analysis on customer demands and strategic sales activities.” “We plan to enhance our capability in building specialized vessels through technical cooperation with STX Europe, and a number of inquiries on export in the defense industry, which is beneficial to development of the nation, are coming in from abroad,” he added.
