11亿美元!三星重工两天连获5艘LNG船订单

韩国三星重工两天连获5艘超11亿美元LNG船订单,今年以来承接的LNG船订单已经达到10艘。

5月17日,三星重工发布公告称,该公司与一家非洲地区船东签订了3艘大型LNG船的建造合同,合同金额8623亿韩元(约合6.74亿美元),单船造价约为2.2467亿美元。

三星重工此次承接的LNG船的货舱采用薄膜型设计,法国GTT的Mark-Ⅲ Flex货物围护系统,同时配备了X-DF双燃料低速发动机,使用燃料油和航行中LNG货舱的蒸发气体作为动力。这3艘LNG船计划在2026年1月之前陆续交付。

5月18日,三星重工又宣布与大洋洲地区船东签订了2艘大型LNG船的建造合同,合同金额5913亿韩元(约合4.61亿美元)。值得一提的是,最新的订单单船造价约为2.3095亿美元,相比5月17日的订单价格上涨了约630万美元。

此前,三星重工于2月23日宣布,与非洲地区船东签订了4艘大型LNG船的建造合同,合同金额9985亿韩元(约合8.38亿美元);4月1日,三星重工又宣布与大洋洲地区船东签订了1艘大型LNG船的建造合同,合同金额2633亿韩元(约合2.17亿美元)。

加上5月最新的两份建造合同,三星重工今年以来的累计接单业绩增加到了19艘,包括10艘LNG船、9艘集装箱船,合同金额33亿美元,达到了全年接单目标88亿美元的38%。

截止目前,在三星重工今年承接的19艘新船订单中,以LNG为动力的高附加值环保船舶订单就有14艘,合同金额约为26亿美元,占总接单量的79%。通过采取以收益性为中心的接单策略,三星重工正在稳定地增加手持订单。

三星重工相关人士表示:“目前,因全球LNG产量增加、国际海事组织(IMO)环保新规强化而导致的更新换代需求,以及受俄乌冲突影响而导致的LNG海上运输量增加的期待感等,更加刺激了LNG船市场的新需求。再加上造船企业的船坞资源也很紧张,预计LNG船的价格上升趋势还将持续一段时间。”

根据克拉克森的数据,以4月底为基准,17.4万立方米级LNG船的新船造价为2.24亿美元,比2020年底的1.86亿美元上涨了20%左右。

三星重工表示,考虑到全球LNG运输量增加和国际海事组织(IMO)环保新规强化导致的船舶更新需求,预计今年LNG船的订造趋势也将持续下去。公司将以环保技术优势为基础,加上扎实的接单,为实现今年的接单目标竭尽全力。(王楚)
