Samsung Heavy Industries announced on August 20 that it has won an order for two LNG tankers from a North American client for about US$365 million.
The latest order came after the company won an order for two LNG carriers from Celsius Tankers in Europe on August 17. As a consequence, Samsung Heavy Industries won orders for 33 vessels worth US$3.6 billion in total this year.
“The price of an LNG tanker recently began to rise, which is expected to help improve our profitability,” said an official of Samsung Heavy Industries.
