LNG Carrier - Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine EngineeringHeadquartered in Seoul, Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. has a shipyard on Geoje Island on the southern tip of the Korea peninsula and maintains business relationships with major shipping and oil companies all over the world.

With over 33 years of experience in shipbuilding and offshore projects, the company prides itself on being able to build sophisticated products with a level of technical superiority second-to none, with timely delivery and an unparalleled dedication to customer satisfaction.

The maker’s LNG vessels, with the proven reliability of the GTT membrane containment system, feature low construction costs and less fuel consumption. Moreover, in comparison with similar ships of the same class, they operate at the highest speed.
Shipowners can also take advantage of their exceptional maneuverability and ease of maintenance.

Equipped with the in-house-developed integrated automation system, operators of the company’s LNG vessels are able to control and monitor a variety of tasks, such as loading and unloading and navigating. The LNG simulator further enhances safety by providing forecasts of navigational risk factors and LNG status.

The global shipbuilder recently released that it signed a 910 billion won ($777 million) contract with Malaysia’s Petroliam Nasional Berhad to build a high-end ship capable of producing, storing and unloading liquefied natural gas(LNG).

DSME said it was the firm’s first contract to build an LNG floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The LPG-FPSO will be 300 meters in length and 60 meters wide, capable of simultaneously holding up to 180,000 cubic meters of LNG and 20,000 cubic meters of condensate, a low-density mixture of hydrocarbon liquids.

Based on this capacity, it can produce, store and offload up to 1.2 million tons of LNG. “Global demand for LPGFPSO continues to increase, the deal will help DSME win additional contracts” said a spokesperson.

The partner also released a high expectation for the deal, noting the cooperation of DSME and Technip will lead to a successful operation. Making 16 contracts worth $5.77 billion as of July, the company is making its all-out efforts for this year’s original target of accomplishing $11 billion.
