Majors' profit battered

Korea's large shipyards are facing their earnings having started to get weaker since 2009, as more and more low-margin newbuildings are reflected on the revenue.

Hyundai Heavy Industries saw its operating profit for the second quarter of 2012 plunged by 65.2% year-on-year to KRW 358.5bn ($317m), while Samsung Heavy Industries' Q2 operating profit declined by 22.1% to KRW 264.3bn.
Majors' profit battered

STX Offshore & Shipbuilding dropped its H1 operating profit by 30.3% year-on-year and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering also appear to have poor profits.

Industry player said, "Low priced newbuildings, contracted after the global financial crisis in 2008 in order to survive, have begun to be reflected on the book. Therefore, weak earnings are highly likely to last until the first half of 2013."

Newbuilding prices going into a nose dive are biggest issue and large shipbuilders are defending their earnings by focusing on sales of high-value offshore plant, special ship, etc.

Financial institutions forecast shipyards would continue to see doldrums until the end of this year, saying "Shipbuilding industries are far from expecting recovery in a short term by flourishing orders. Also, even with continued orders for high-value newbuildings, these will be reflected after H1 2013."

Hasteless in additional order


Hasteless in additional order

Norden is in no hurry to add up its eco tanker order at Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) of China.

Copenhagen-listed Norden had inked two firm handysize tankers at the yard with options for four more. But CEO Carsten Mortensen refuses to comment on the potential for the options to make it off the drawing board.

Mortensen said, “We wish to grow that segment still but we are in no big hurry to go out and order because we do not think the demand will fundamentally change for these ships over the coming year or two.”

“Structurally the dry cargo market is significantly more oversupplied now and we think the tanker market is more past the big delivery time,” he added.

Wood Group wins Prelude work


Wood Group wins Prelude work

Anglo-Dutch supermajor Royal Dutch Shell awarded a contract to Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) for its Prelude FLNG facility off the coast of Western Australia.

Worth A$10 million (US$10.5 million), the contract involves building the computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) for Prelude.

“We are thrilled to be involved in such a groundbreaking project. This is an iconic engineering development centred on the largest floating, man-made structure ever built,” WGPSN Australia regional director Matt Gavin said in a statement.

The CMMS will be designed to optimise the maintenance, reliability and productivity of the Prelude FLNG facility and equip Shell with the data, reporting tools and strategies required to execute asset maintenance and inspection plans.

Havyard designs new wellboat


Havyard designs new wellboat

Fosnavaag Shipping is going to have a new wellboat constructed with an option for one further delivery.

The company has chosen a design from Havyard Group. The design is characterized as being the wellboat of the future.

Wellboat is a boat having a well in which fish or lobsters can be kept alive.

CEO Olav Remøy in Fosnavaag Shipping is delighted with the fact that they have now chosen their design and he has great faith in this being the correct time to go for a newbuild. The design is based on previous experiences the shipping company has made on their other three wellboats.

Both ship owner and design company are convinced that this is the wellboat of the future with a completely new and unique tank that the shipping company has been involved in developing.

Designer Kjetil Myren at Havyard Design & Engineering (HDE) in Fosnavåg informs that Havyard 587 is presently the largest in a series of wellboat designs developed in close cooperation with Fosnavaag Shipping.

The vessel has three large cylinder tanks for live fish with capacity for an impressive 3250 cubic. The ship is nearly 85 metres long and has accommodation for a crew of 12.

Havyard 587 will contain the finest within well boat technology, setting a new standard for gentle and environmentally friendly transport and treatment of live fish. The cylindrical cargo tanks and the efficient filter- and water treatment equipment, make it possible to do a sealed transport across long distances and with a greater fish density, informs the designer, who emphasizes that both hull lines and propulsion machinery are designed to suit a high maximum speed, as well as an operational-friendly average speed.

Delivery of the ship is due in January 2014 with the option for one further delivery six months later.

Fosnavaag Shipping now is in final negotiations with a shipyard regarding the construction of the wellboats.

Maersk eyes drillship orders


Maersk eyes drillship orders

Maersk Drilling is planning to order more drillships to support its pledge to invest $5bn in eight new rigs over the next five years.

Chief executive Claus Hemmingsen said that drillships will be an integral part of the investment plan.

Drillships have an advantage because they are more efficient when it comes to exploration, said Mr Hemmingsen. Semi-submersible rigs are used for developing a field and preparing it for production.

Maersk Drilling already has four newbuilding drillships on order at Samsung Heavy Industries.
