Samsung Heavy Industries Co., a major South Korean shipbuilder, said Thursday that it has clinched a deal worth a combined 870 billion won (US$774 million) to build four liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.
The contract was made with an American shipper, the company said in a regulatory filing without providing exact details.
The ships will be delivered by September 2022.
With the latest deal, Samsung Heavy has won deals valued at $1.1 billion so far this year to build six LNG ships.
Samsung Heavy earlier announced that it aims to bag $7.8 billion won worth of orders this year.
