New order undaunted by lower price"


New order undaunted by lower price"

Lower price would only increase sales and purchase activity in shipping market and newbuilding investment seems to be made mainly by ship capacity, but by the prices.

Park Mu-Hyun, an analyst at E*Trade Securities said, "Newbuilding order for boxship is largely affected by owners' competition for service market share. Therefore, low pricing is not enough to surge newbuilding investment."

And explained, "Also, after global economic depression, second-hand prices fall much bigger than newbuilding prices."

Park said Korean shipyard have been placed orders for mostly fuel-efficient and space-efficient vessels.

He added, "Shipping market is facing a serious tonnage oversupply problem, which seems to continue for the next few years, then newbuilding price will drop further."

And emphasized, "Comparing with current fleet, owners would better invest in newly-developed design."

Overblown MR market


Overblown MR market

Surging investment in MR tanker segment seems to bring disappointment.

Although the MR orderbook stands at just over 10% of the fleet and the demand is likely to grow by refinery development in the Middle East, the real potential of the market may have been overblown, Intermodal explains.

George Lazaridis says bigger vessels are to benefit most, explaining "At the same time as the voyage distance starts to increase, these larger sizes become better suited to take advantage of these routes due to the extra benefits offered by the economies of scale.”

Added, “Large product tankers such as LR1s and LR2s are most likely to benefit, leaving the MR tanker range oversupplied and with slacking demand.”

Technip gains from subsea boom

French engineering company Technip has posted a considerable jump in revenue from its subsea division following several new orders.

The company’s second quarter results reported a group revenue of about €2 billion (US$2.4 billion) and an operating income of €201 million (up from €176 million a year ago).

The company recorded an order intake for the quarter of about €2.5 billion and a backlog of more than €12.7 billion, with subsea accounting for almost half.

Technip’s net income for the quarter remained on par with last year, at €134 million.

It has forecasted a group revenue of between €7.65 and €8.00 billion for the full year.

Technip is eyeing substantial orders in its onshore and offshore division, including an engineering, procurement and construction project in Saudi Arabia and fabrication contracts for the Petronas floating liquefied natural gas project in Malaysia, and the Ichthys floating production, storage and offloading vessel in Australia.

Lamprell's H1 profit to plummet


Lamprell's H1 profit to plummet

Fabricator Lamprell has warned its first-half loss will be more than double previously forecasted as delayed deliveries add to its financial woes, and warned of a full-year loss for the first time.

After a further financial review, it is expected first half losses of around $45 million, having previously warned it would go into the red to the tune of between $15 and $20 million.

The company cited additional costs stemming from the delayed delivery of its Windcarrier 1 and 2 projects for the latest warning, the third in little more than three months for the troubled outfit.

The company stressed that newbuild jack-up orders were not subject to any further delays, with equipment deliveries proceeding according to previously revised schedules.

Bahrain's ship repair grows


Bahrain's ship repair grows

Bahrain's ship repair business registered between 10 and 15 per cent growth in the first six months of the year compared with 2011, it was revealed.

Arab Shipbuilding and Repair Yard Company (Asry) chief executive Chris Potter said this was a significant improvement over the previous year, when business was badly affected due to regional tensions and clients' reluctance to come to the region.

"Asry's offshore business also compensated well for all the troubles that we otherwise had," Mr Potter said.

He said the company would continue to look at diversifying in the future to keep up with the ship repair yards all over the world.
