The shipowner, Overseas Shipholding Group (OSG) is one of the largest shipping companies in the U.S., which had ever placed more than 50 vessel orders to HHI. The company expressed its confidence to HHI¡¯s technology and capability by placing new LNG carriers order.

With the new order, HHI solidified its position as a leading shipbuilder of high value-added ships by winning 13 LNG carriers this year. The company had received eight 155,000 m3 LNG carriers (including four optional vessels) order from BP last month.
