STX Offshore & Shipbuilding is reportedly in talks with Korea Marine Transport Co (KMTC) to build a 5,000TEU, wide-beam containership, plus one option.
Delivery is said to be scheduled by the first half of 2014.
KMTC is to order the largest boxship in its fleet as newbuilding prices have almost hit the bottom.
The liner had also ordered two 2,800TEU ships at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard last year.
