Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) has won an order for the construction of twelve very large container ships from an unnamed European shipping company.
The vessels will be built by KSOE’s subsidiary Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries and the contract is worth KRW 2.52 trillion ($2 billion).
KSOE said that the ships would be delivered by the end of 2026.
According to Yonhap, the containerships will be powered by methanol.
Unconfirmed shipbroker reports have linked French CMA CGM to the order.
