Dae Sun wins another chemical tanker order

South Korean yard Dae Sun Shipbuilding & Engineering has won an order from a local line, Sambu Shipping, to build a 3,500 dwt chemical tanker.

The order takes Dae Sun’s ship tally to five for 2016. Sambu was able to tap into the government’s new fleet modernisation scheme to get a decent ship finance deal for this contract.
