Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering is expected to maximize the effect of repetitive drying by applying the same design and specifications. This will have a positive impact on the company’s productivity and profitability.

In particular, the shipowner who signed the contract is expected to place orders with DSME in preparation for an increase in oil exports in the Americas.

Based on current contracts, DSME’s shipbuilding orders accounted for 42 vessels, 75 large-sized crude oil carriers, 26 large-sized container carriers, and 7 large-sized containerships. Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering plans to maximize productivity and profitability through continuous construction by simplifying the construction of dry-type vessels with high value-added vessels.
