DSME wins single LNG carrier order worth about $239 million

South Korea’s shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering has received an order for one liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier worth about $239 million.

DSME will build the 174,000-cbm LNG carrier for an unidentified owner in Asia and deliver it by August 2026.

The shipbuilder said the deal has a price tag of 311.2 billion won or about $239 million.

Also, the vessel would feature MAN ME-GA engine and a reliquefaction system.

One shipbuilding source said that the owner behind this order is likely Japan’s MOL. LNG Prime could not confirm this by the time this article was published.

With this order, DSME secured contracts worth about $6.67 billion for 29 ships this year, including six LNG-powered containerships and 21 LNG tankers.

DSME has now achieved about 75 percent of its annual target of $8.9 billion.

Last year, the yard won about $10.8 billion in orders, exceeding its target of $7.7 billion.
