Hyundai Mipo To Build Two Ro-Ro Ferries For CLdN

Last week South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard informed the stock exchange that it had secured an order for two “car carriers” for an “undisclosed European shipowner”.

In fact, the order is presumably for two ro-ro vessels for CLdN. This has not been officially confirmed by CLdN, yet, but all arrows point in the same direction. Some sources say there is an option for a further two units.

CLdN recently had to cancel its twin order at the ill-fated Uljanik shipyard in Croatia.

The contract with Hyundai Mipo is worth KRW 163.2 billion (EUR 123.2 million). CLdN is a good customer of the yard, with LAURELINE and YSALINE recently delivered, and SIXTINE and HERMINE to be delivered later this year.
