Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has won an additional order for an LNG carrier. The company is making all-out efforts to achieve its goal of winning contracts this year.
DSME said on Dec. 10 that it has won an order for a LNG carrier from Maran Gas Maritime affiliated with the John Angelicoussis Group, the largest shipping company in Greece. It will be built at Okpo Dockyard in Geoje and will be delivered to the ship owner by the first half of 2021.
It is a 173,400㎥-class large LNG carrier. Its fuel efficiency is some 30 percent higher than the existing LNG carrier as it is equipped with the natural gas propulsion engine (ME-GI) and Full Re-Liquefaction System (FRS), which are boasted by DSME.
The deal will give DSME the 101st ship from the Angelicoussis Group. "The company's surplus for the third consecutive quarter and its management normalization lead to the trust of the shareholders, resulting in a rise in the order," said a DSME official.
