Struggling South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding &
Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. said it has won a 1 trillion won
(approx. $870 million USD) order to build two 173,400-cubic-meter
liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers for an undisclosed European
ship owner.

The contract, secured on February 2, includes options for two
additional vessels that if exercised would increase the contract
by about 83 billion won.

The 295-meter-long, 46-meter-wide vessels will be built at Geoje
Okpo shipyard for delivery starting in the second half of 2019.

According to the shipbuilder, the LNG carriers will run on
natural gas as main fuel, and will be equipped with a high
pressure gas injection engine (ME-GI) by Man Diesel and a partial
re-liquefaction system (PRS).
