  HMM's board has also finalised a plan to invest KRW470 billion (US$418 million) in new facilities for the construction of five, 300,000 dwt large crude carriers (VLCCs) with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), with an option for five more, American Shipper reports. Deliveries will start in the first half of 2019.

  The plan will be financed through the New Shipbuilding Programme, which the Korean government announced last October to support the shipping industry.
