Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) of Korea recently announced that, under an agreement concluded with the Danish ship design company Burmeister & Wain Shipdesign Aps (BWS), it is providing the Portuguese shipyard Setenave with a complete design package, including all design documentation, related technical and engineering information, to construct and outfit an 88,900-dwt crude carrier.

BWS, who was originally involved in the development of the above ship design with HHI, is currently acting as HHI's counterpart on behalf of Setenave. Under the agreement, BWS is to supervise and provide a design to Setenave, which won a contract from Soponata last year to build one-plus-optional-one 88,900-dwt crude carrier.

The complete set of drawings which HHI is providing is based on the design of its Hull No. 349 (the 88,900-dwt crude carrier Golden Fleece delivered to Argonaut AB of Sweden in 1985) incorporating various requirements of the Portuguese project.

HHI reports that its technological capabilities can be largely attributed to its continued, strategic investment in R&D activities.
