The shipbuilder did not reveal the name of the buyer. 'This year is expected to see a rise in new orders for eco-friendly container carriers thanks to growing demand for replacing old ships,' Samsung said.
Samsung has bagged $1.3 billion worth of orders, or 10 ships, including nine container carriers, so far this year.
The amount of orders accounted for 17 per cent of the shipbuilder's order target for 2021 worth $7.8 billion, which is up 42 per cent from its orders of $5.5 billion in 2020.
