South Korea’s shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) said it had secured an order worth 394.1 billion won ($366m) to build two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.
The two LNG vessels are scheduled for delivery by the first half of 2020, DSME said in a filing to the stock exchange.
Daewoo did not reveal the name of the shipping company located in the Americas.
This is Daewoo’s first LNG newbuilding order for the year of 2018. To remind, in December it won an order worth 430.5 billion won to build a new LNG carrier and a floating storage regasification unit (FSRU).
