Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction became the leader of the Korean tanker market by successfully building a product and chemical tanker for the first time in 1970. By building a variety of tankers since that time, our chemical tanker was voted the best ship in the world in 2000, a first for this type of ship. Further, in 2008 we also received the order for a 320,000 ton very large crude oil carrier(VLCC). Our entry into the VLCC market was the result of a diversification of carrier types and the strategic selection of orders focusing on high value added carriers. This in turn enhances the position of Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction in the global tanker market.
