Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co., the world’s second-biggest shipbuilder by sales, said Thursday it has won a $230 million order to build a liquefied natural gas ship. Under the deal with an unidentified customer in the Oceania region, Daewoo Shipbuilding will deliver the 174,000-cubic meter vessel by the end of 2021.
