Cochin Shipyard Ltd Succeeds Getting Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd to Share Technology for Building Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers at Yard in Kochi

Cochin Shipyard Ltd. succeeded in getting Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. to share technology for building liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers at its yard in Kochi. The move prepares Cochin Shipyard to make itself eligible to bid for a tender to be issued by GAIL (India) Ltd. in early April. GAIL needs nine LNG carriers to haul natural gas from the US to India beginning December 2017. L&T Shipbuilding Ltd, a unit of Larsen & Toubro Ltd, has signed a non-disclosure agreement with Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. to collaborate on building LNG carriers The tie-ups are the result of hectic lobbying by India to get technology from overseas specialists in the field. India's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj had lobbied at the diplomatic level with the South Korean government during a visit to Seoul in December 2014 to help inexperienced Indian yards get the technology to build the ships locally. GAIL had decided on 17 February to scrap a tender to hire the LNG carriers from fleet owners due to lack of response from bidders. The tender had stipulated that at least three of the nine LNG ships that GAIL planned to hire from fleet owners for 20 years must be built at local yards, a factor which shipping industry executives believe discouraged bidders from participation. Local yards, which have never built LNG ships before, need technological tie-ups with South Korean and Japanese specialists to become eligible for constructing the LNG tankers. The Make in India campaign aims to transform the country into a manufacturing powerhouse, boosting exports by incentivizing import substitution. GAIL is now considering splitting the tender into two with one tender for hiring six LNG carriers that are to be built at overseas yards and the second for three ships to be constructed locally, according to a shipping industry executive privy to the plan. The planned ship hiring tender of GAIL will be India's biggest. The nine LNG carriers would cost a combined $2.5 billion to build from scratch for fleet owners. GAIL will have to spend an estimated $7.5 billion to hire the nine ships over a 20-year period, according to the shipping industry executive mentioned earlier.
