Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., the world's second-biggest shipbuilder by sales, said Tuesday it has won an order to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) ship.
Under the deal with an unidentified customer in the Oceania region, Daewoo Shipbuilding will deliver the vessel by the first half of 2021.
The shipyard did not disclose the value of the deal or other details.
This month alone, Daewoo Shipbuilding clinched deals to build five LNG ships.
With the latest order, Daewoo Shipbuilding has received orders to build 44 ships valued at a combined US$6.58 billion so far this year, achieving 90 percent of its annual order target of $7.3 billion for 2018, it said. (yonhap)
