Daewoo Shipbuilding secures two-vessel LNG carrier order

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) will build two large LNG carriers for two unnamed US-based shipping companies.

The US$3.7 billion contract also includes four options which is expected to generate additional orders in 2019.

The 174,000-cubic-metre vessels will be constructed at DSME’s Okpo shipyard and will be delivered beginning in the first half of 2021.
