Industry leader Hyundai Heavy's two subsidiaries _ Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co. and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries _ were fourth and fifth, with order backlogs of 3.93 million CGT and 3.27 million CGT. According to Clarkson, STX Shipbuilding Co. and Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction climbed a notch each to sixth and seventh place, respectively. Their order backlogs amounted to 2.13 million CGT and 2.10 million CGT, oveertaking Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., which had been No. 6 in the industry. The Japanese industry leader was placed eighth in the world with an order backlog of 2.09 million CGT.
