about 291ha of land, they have a painting plant, dry docks, grand assembly plant,
panel plants, processing plants and many more.
dry docks have three Goliath Cranes with the capacity to produce 1,500,000 tons
(GT) a year. Operating two Goliath Cranes, they can handle 1,100ton-heavy
blocks, which are Korea’s heaviest blocks. Also, their capacity
to handle steels reaches about 400,000 tons a year. Haenam Bay around
the plants is 12m deep in average and as it is surrounded by variously sized
islands, they are free from the problems of docking large-scale ships or of
the natural disasters of tornatoes or tidal waves. Hyundai Samho
Heavy Industry first produced a ship in Dec. 1996. Since then, they have
produced various medium or large scale ships, including VLCC, which is an ultra-scale
oil-tanker, container vessels, chemical vessels and bulk carriers. Ever
