South Korea's Samkang M&T has won a KRW 3bn ($2.9m) contract to supply all thick steel pipes needed to build Dokdo marine science platform.
Delivery is set by the end of February, 2012.
The company specializes in thick steel pipes used in offshore structures.
Back in April this year, Samkang M&T also won a contract to supply an offshore structure to France's Technip.
Samkang was approved by Technip as an Engineering, Procurement & Construction Company last December and the first supply contract was clinched in April.
Meanwhile, Dokdo, also known as the Liancourt Rocks, is a group of small islets in the East Sea.
Sovereignty over the islets is disputed between South Korea and Japan but Dokdo has been administered by South Korea, which has its Coast Guard stationed there.
