South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has secured a contract for the construction of six LNG-powered containerships.

The order has been placed by an undisclosed shipowner from Europe. The price tag for the contract is KRW 841.2 billion ($718 million), the company announced in its stock exchange filing.

The newly-ordered ships are expected to be delivered by November 2024.

Other details of the contract were not revealed.

So far this year, SHI has secured orders for 60 ships worth $7.8 billion, which represents more than 80% of its annual target.

Last month, the company scored an order for the construction of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, scheduled for delivery by the end of September 2024.
