Daewoo Secures $1.66b in New Order

Friday, April 20, 2007
Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine and Engineering Co. said it has received a combined $1.66b in new orders this month to build 16 vessels. The vessels won together with its Romanian subsidiary, Daewoo Mangalia Heavy Industries S.A., include four container vessels and one liquefied natural gas tanker, the shipbuilder said in a statement. South Korea, home to seven of the world's top 10 shipyards, clinched record-high orders last year on strong demand for crude carriers and offshore exploration equipment amid lofty oil prices. South Korean shipbuilders such as Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. and Samsung Heavy Industries Co. are expected to see their exports rise 18 per cent to $26 billion this year on the back of continuous demand for high-end ships and other products.
