Hyundai Samho receives contract for three VLCCs
A contract for the construction of three very large crude carriers was won by the South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, a subsidiary of Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering Co. (VLCCs).
With deliveries scheduled for 2022, the order has been obtained from an undisclosed shipowner based in Asia.
The contract is worth 298.8 billion KRW (268.9 million dollars). The deal is being reported on the heels of a contract for two container ships reported earlier this month by Hyundai Samho.
The two boxships were ordered and are scheduled for shipment in 2023 by an unidentified European shipowner.
