HIGH-VALUE TONNAGE STRATEGY PAYS OFF FOR DSME

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 

As 2018 closed, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering announced that it won an order for an LNG carrier from Oceania shipping company. The 174,000m3 capacity vessel will be equipped with a natural gas propulsion engine (ME-GI) and a full re-liquefaction system (FRS) to reduce emissions by 30% or more.

The Korean shipbuilder also received an order for the renovation and rehabilitation of three KDX-I class destroyers. 

DSME said it has achieved significant results this year in the competitive LNGC and defence sectors. "It was a good idea to have a sales strategy focused on high value-added vessels such as LNG carriers and special ships. We will do our best to achieve our order target, and we will continue to do so next year,” said the shipbuilder

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering won a total of 47 vessels worth US$6.81 billion in 2018, including 18 LNG carriers, 16 large-sized crude oil carriers, 16 super large containerships, and 6 special-purpose vessels.
