Aker American Shipping Signs Agreement With Hyundai Mipo

Wednesday, March 28, 2007
Aker American Shipping has, through its subsidiary Aker Philadelphia Shipyard, Inc., signed an agreement with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co. Ltd. extending the current relationship to include additional tankers as well as containerships. This further solidifies the strong partnership between Aker American Shipping, a leading Jones Act ship owner, and Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, a leading global shipbuilder.

Under an agreement signed in 2004, Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) has been providing design and procurement services for a series of ten 46,000 dwt tankers currently being constructed at Aker American's shipyard in Philadelphia. The new agreement covers an additional six tankers, which mirrors an agreement in principle for additional charters with Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (OSG) that Aker American Shipping announced in February 2007, as well as exclusive rights for containerships.
