DSME Lands $539m Boxship Deal

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has won a major boxship deal from a European owner reaching its yearly target of $13 billion in new orders.

The shipbuilder said in a regulatory filing today that it has secured a contract valued around $539 million to deliver six (plus four optional) container vessels to Zodiac Maritime.

Under the deal, DSME will build six 10,000 containerships at its Okpo yard scheduled for delivery in 2016.

These fuel-efficient Post-Panamax vessels will be on a long-term charter with Hyundai Merchant Marine.
