South Korea: EUKOR Orders New Car Carriers from Hyundai Heavy

South Korea - EUKOR Orders New Car Carriers from Hyundai Heavy

According to SeatradeAsia, the world’s largest shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has secured a contract to build up to four pure car carriers for Eukor Car Carriers.

Korea based Eukor Car Carriers has placed an order for two 6,600-ceu carriers plus an option for two more with the Korean shipyard. The price of the newbuildings is estimated at around USD 67m each. Delivery of the carriers is scheduled for the second half of 2013.

Analysts are expecting more orders for pure car carrier newbuildings as the order backlog in the sector currently stands at just 6% of the total fleet.
