Samsung Heavy bags US$240 mln order for 2 shuttle tankers


Samsung Heavy Industries Co., a major shipbuilder here, said Monday that it has clinched a US$240 million deal to build two shuttle oil tankers.

Under the deal with AET, an affiliate of Malaysian shipping firm MISC, Samsung Heavy will build the two vessels by January 2020, the company said in a regulatory filing.
