Samsung Heavy has so far this year bagged orders of five ships - one liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier and four container carriers - worth a combined $600 million.
The amount of the orders amount to eight per cent of the company's order target of $78 billion for this year.
New orders of ships globally are estimated to grow 24 per cent on year to 23.8 million compensate gross tons (CGTs) this year, Samsung Heavy said, quoting data provided by global market researcher Clarkson Research Service.
