Hyundai Heavy Wins Orders worth USD 1.1 Billion

Hyundai Heavy Industries, the world's biggest shipbuilder, today announced the Company had won orders for 4 liquefied natural gas carriers and 1 LNG floating storage regasification unit worth USD 1.1 billion.

Hyundai Heavy won orders to build two 162,000 cbm LNG carriers for Golar LNG of Norway on February 10 and two same-class ships for an unnamed European shipowner on February 8. The contract with Golar LNG includes an option exercisable by the Norwegian company for two additional same-class LNG carriers. LNG carriers for Golar LNG will be built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, a Hyundai Heavy affiliate.

These membrane-type LNG carriers, scheduled to be delivered between the second quarter of 2014 and the first half of 2015, will feature the Dual Fuel Diesel Engine System (DFDE) which allows the ships to run on oil fuel or natural gas.

In addition, Hyundai Heavy won an order to build a third LNG Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) for Hoegh on February 13. The contract for the LNG FSRU is an option exercised by Hoegh from the original contract signed in June 2011. The 170,000 cbm LNG FSRU is scheduled to be delivered by the second quarter of 2014.

LNG FSRU receive liquefied natural gas from offloading LNG carriers. The installed regasification system provides gas send-out through flexible risers and pipelines to shore. LNG FSRU take a year less and cost half as much as an onshore LNG terminal to complete.

Since the first LNG carrier order in 1991, which was also the first LNG carrier built in Korea, Hyundai Heavy has built 40 ships for liquefied natural gas.
