Since its establishment as Korea’s first steel shipbuilder in 1937, HHIC has played a leading role in making Korea the largest shipbuilding nation in the world. Due to its 70 years of expertise and advanced technology, the company has annually been awarded ‘the world’s best shipbuilder’ since 1992.
At present, HHIC focuses on very large container ships, LNG carriers, tankers and bulk carriers. In terms of container carriers, in particular, we are second to none based on know-how and the technology accumulated through the building of 500 container carriers. Furthermore, HHIC first built a large-sized membrane-type LNG carrier in Asia. With the development of new types of ships through continuous investment in R&D, HHIC has been accelerating the manufacture of high-technology and high value-added vessels.
Furthermore,we have developed about 1,000 ships including icebreaker, Diving Support Vessels, cable ships, RO-RO vessels, reefer vessels, drilling rig and dredger based on outstanding shipbuilding capabilities. In fact, HHIC has been known as the best shipbuilder that perfectly meets the needs and demands of ship owners.
Now, we make another leap forward with advanced technology. We will secure global technical competitiveness by actively pushing ahead oceanic projects including VLCC, Offshore, FPSO and offshore plants along with high value added container carrier and LNG carrier projects based on our global shipbuilding system in cooperation with Subic Shipyard in the Philippines. Our challenge to change the global shipbuilding industry has begun.
