Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) won orders for four tanker newbuildings from Norway’s Viken Shipping. The South Korean shipbuilder said Wednesday the deal involved a pair of suezmaxes and two aframax tankers. The vessels are set for delivery in 2018. Options were said to be attached.
This latest deal comes two weeks after Samsung clinched a KRW 420bn order for two LNG carriers, marking its first contract in almost a year. Samsung is also set to win more deals valued at a combined KRW 3 trillion, including a FLNG newbuilding for Mozambique.
