Hyundai Mipo received orders for petrochemical carrier quartet
Shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD), part of Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering Co., received orders for four petrochemical carriers to be built.
On July 21, HMD said it inked an 86.8 billion KRW (around 72.6 million dollars) contract for two petrochemical tankers with an unidentified Asian shipowner. There are two options in the contract.
The ships are scheduled to be delivered in a stock exchange filing by 30 September 2021, HMD said in.
The 50,000-ton ships will be 183 meters long, and 32.2 meters wide. Construction is expected to begin in November 2020.
According to a stock exchange filing approved by HMD, the units are slated for delivery by 30 November 2021. They will be of the same dimensions as the ships listed above.
So far this year Korea Shipbuilding received orders to build a total of 22 petrochemical carriers.
