Daewoo tipped to ink $14bn
Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering is being forecast to win $14bn orders this year as new orders speed up in the latter part of the year.
Daiwa Securities expects a strong order momentum for Daewoo in the third quarter.
The South Korean shipbuilder has won new orders for 16 ships and offshore plants worth $4.35bn so far this year.

Daewoo is aiming to win $11bn orders in 2011 but Daiwa hiked Daewoo's order intake forecast from $12bn to $14bn.
The securities firm said Daewoo is soon to win additional ten, 18,000TEU newbuildings from Denmark's AP Moller-Maersk.
