In 2022, the docks at Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) must be kept busy since it has continuously received a shipbuilding order in the last month of 2021. The construction of a liquified natural gas (LNG) carrier with an undisclosed shipowner in Latin America will be carried out.

The order is valued at KRW 241.6 billion (around $203 million), SHI revealed in a stock exchange filing on 27 December 2021.

Under the terms of the deal, the LNG carrier is scheduled to be delivered by 31 December 2024.

With the newest order, Samsung Heavy has won $12.2 billion worth of orders this year, surpassing its annual order target of $9.1 billion.

The shipyard has successfully made its docks busy with carrying out the shipbuilding construction until next year. Currently, SHI has secured 22 LNG carriers, 44 containerships, and 14 crude oil carriers on order.

Lately, the firm has succeeded in developing a new generation of FLNG SENSE IV proudly. SHI is an outstanding shipyard that obtained the shipbuilding of 3 large FLNGs out of 4 large FLNGs in the world.
