The Ministry of Knowledge Economy said local shipbuilders, such as HYUNDAI HEAVY INDUSTRIES CO., SAMSUNG HEAVY INDUSTRIES CO. and DAEWOO SHIPBUILDING & MARINE ENGINEERING CO., clinched 4.62 million compensated gross tons (CGT) in new orders in the January-June period, up 450 per cent from a year earlier.
