Hyundai delivery No.1



South Korean yards dominate top 10 as global deliveries hit record 159m dwt.

Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Ulsan shipyard beat Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering to become the world’s largest shipyard in 2011, building 82 vessels with a combined 10.1m dwt, according to Clarkson Research Services.

According to Clarkson’s latest Shipyard Monitor, the list of top 10 players in terms of total dwt delivered in 2011 includes seven South Korean yards and others from China.

HHI and DSME outperformed their South Korean rivals, Samshung HI’s Geoje yard, Hyundai Samho HI, Sundong Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, STX Offshore & Shipbuilding and Hyundai Mipo Dockyard.

The top Chinese yard was Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Corp, producing 31 ships, or 5.7m dwt, followed by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding and New Times Shipbuilding.

While China was the largest shipbuilding nation for the second year running, its total output of 65.6m dwt increased only 5% last year. This is relatively small growth, considering the country’s output jumped 75% between 2009-2010.

Although South Korean yards delivered 52.9m dwt in 2011, this is an 11% increase over 2010, Clarksons’ data shows.

China’s newbuilding deliveries were worth $42.8bn while South Korea, which can build a wider range of vessels, made deliveries equivalent to a contract value of $51.2bn.

“The difference in value was a result of South Korean yards delivering a much greater proportion of traditionally higher value vessels into the global fleet,” the report said. “This included 110% more containership vessels and 27.7% more gas vessels, in terms of vessel numbers.”

In contrast, most Chinese deliveries over the last couple of years have been cheaper dry bulk carriers.

Maersk 18,000TEU option to expire


Maersk Line looks set to limit its fleet of 18,000 teu containerships to 20 units, but has more than a month to decide whether to exercise its option to order 10 more.

The deadline on the option for the final tranche expires at the end of February, but Maersk has already said it does not expect to convert the option into a firm order.

The decision is likely to be confirmed when AP Moller-Maersk publishes its full-year results on February 27.

Hanjin targets $2.3bn


Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction of South Korea doubled its new order target this year on last year's performance.

Also, its turnover would grow, albeit a little, compared to last year.

KB Investment & Securities presented KRW 3.3trn ($2.91bn) of guidance turnover for 2012, including KRW 800bn for Youngdo yard, KRW 1.2trn for Subic yard in the Philippines and KRW 1.25trn for construction division.

2012 new order target, in particular, is $2.3bn, which is double 2011's overall new order.

Analyst Lee Sang-Won from KB said, "Hanjin targeted overall $2.3bn of new order in shipbuilding division for this year, including $1bn from Youngdo, $1.3bn from Subic."

Added, "Even though Hanjin seems to have won $1.2bn of new order in 2011, only 30% of target, due to depressed market and its labor union-management conflict, Hanjin is expected to make better performance this year."

KB's Lee said, "Youngdo yard would stabilize as specialized-vessel specialist yard, after restructuring done last year."

Lay-up increase


The number and capacity of containerships in lay-up has surged by almost 30% in little more than a month.

There are now 268 boxships of 676,000-teu laid up as of last week, according to the latest data from Alphaliner.

This compares with 210 ships of 526,000-teu as of the 5 December, increases of 27.6% and 28.5% respectively.

The average size of idle containerships has also been increasing steadily since June last year, from 1,250-teu to 2,500-teu.

“The number of idle ships has increased across all size segments, driven by service withdrawals in the winter season and newbuilding deliveries,” says Alphaliner.

Hamworthy wins further gas system


Hamworthy Oil & Gas Systems has continued the major advance in China’s broadening gas carrier construction sector by securing more contracts for delivery of complete cargo handling systems to two liquid ethylene gas (LEG) carriers to be built at Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (SOE) in Nantong.

The 12,000m3 capacity, 139m long semi-pressurised and refrigerated LEG carriers, will be incorporated in the ongoing project for the construction of six ships ordered by Luxembourg-based Jaccar Holdings/Eitzen Ethylene Carriers.

The owner is to operate under a new name, Evergas, and the new ships will be built in accordance with Sinopacific’s ‘Tiger’ design. Delivery is scheduled from this year onwards.

The contract follows systems for the first six LEG carriers in the ‘Tiger’ series Hamworthy signed with Sinopacific towards the end of 2010. Scope of delivery for the newbuildings again covers engineering and the supply of cargo handling systems, including reliquefaction plant and Hamworthy SvanehĂžj deepwell cargo pumps.

The onboard cargo handling systems are designed for high flexibility cargoes as the vessels have to be capable of transporting LEG at temperatures down to minus 104 °C.

“China is a leading country in the new contract market and, increasingly, it is investing more in vessels for gas transportation,” said Stein Thoresen, Hamworthy Oil & Gas Systems, LPG Business Unit Director. “We see this innovative project as a very significant reference for Hamworthy in the gas ship market in China.”

The three tank arrangement ‘Tiger’ series vessels are configured to achieve enhanced intact and damage stability performance, easy cargo loading operations, and excellent floating conditions for navigation.
