STX Reports Rise in Orders

Tuesday, July 03, 2007
STX Group said its affiliate STX Shipbuilding Co. has won orders valued at $4.7b in the first half of the year, compared with $1.7ba year earlier. The shipbuilding orders it has received so far are roughly 85 per cent of its annual target of $5.5 billion, it said. In June alone, STX Shipbuilding, the world's seventh-largest shipbuilder, clinched orders valued at $1.1 billion.

STX Group has four major subsidiaries -- STX PanOcean Co., STX Shipbuilding Co., STX Engine Co. and STX Energy Co. The group is building another shipyard in China to lower costs and increase capacity to meet rising demand for vessels.

The Chinese shipyard is expected to post $3b in sales in 2012, similar to that of its shipyard in Jinhae, South Korea. Source: Asia Pulse
