Sungdong Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering announced today that it has won an additional order for tuna purse seiner.
The Korean shipbuilder signed a newbuilding contract on Monday for one tuna purse seiner with Hansung Enterprise for delivery by the end of next year.
Earlier this month on October 6th, Sungdong also signed two such vessels with Sajo Industries and Sajo Oyang for each of one vessel.
The newbuilding is the same as the 1,900-ton purse seiner, of which Sajo Industries placed an order at Sungdong in 2010 and was deliverd this year.
Sungdong expects purse seiner newbuilding orders to keep flowing in going forward as it talks with South American and European companies to build around ten such vessels.
Meanwhile, Hansung Enterprise also announced yesterday that it had decided to invest in one newbuilding tuna purse seiner, valued at around KRW 24.78bn ($22.3m), in order to replace older one.
The investment will be completed with delivery by December 25, 2013.
