South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries has signed a deal for the construction of one more liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier.

According to the company’s stock exchange filing, the new order has a value of KRW 215.4 billion (USD 190.6 million).

The contract comes from an undisclosed Asian shipowner and would see the shipbuilder construct and delivery the unit by the end of March 2022.

With the latest order, Samsung Heavy has won deals valued at USD 1.3 billion so far in 2019, including seven LNG carriers.

Samsung Heavy earlier informed that its 2019 orderbook tagret was set at USD 7.8 billion, up 24 percent over last year’s orders amid a strong appetite in the newbuilding market all over the world, particularly for LNG ships and containerships.
