70-Page Color Brochure And Orderbook Chart Available From Samsung

Samsung Shipbuilding & Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (SHI), one of Korea's largest industrial groups, is now offering, free a new 70-page color brochure on its modern shipbuilding and related facilities.

SHI established shipbuilding activities in 1977 on Koje Island off the southern coast of the Korean Peninsula. The yard comprises 2.8 million square meters, with 160,000 square meters of it reserved for plant space. Such a vast area lends itself to ideally situated buildings, and makes for an efficient, uncrowded work area. All shops are located in such a manner as to allow ease and efficiency in handling the large variety and volume of equipment and materials during routine work procedures.

The ideal layout of the Koje shipyard, and a production control system designed to facilitate procedures from steel cutting to assembling and outfitting, insures efficiency, high quality, and cost savings in ship construction.

The recently updated Performance Record is a four-page folder that lists all the vessels completed by SHI thus far, as well as ships on order. It includes vessel types, names of owners, principal particulars, engine types, and delivery dates.

The first vessel built at the Koje yard was an anchor-handling/supply craft delivered in July 1980. The most recent delivery was the sophisticated containership Humboldt Express built for Hapag-Lloyd.
