Two South Korean shipyard giants are said to be joining forces in a unique collaboration to build a series of container ships for Evergreen Marine.

Hanwha Ocean, formerly Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, will supply ship blocks to Samsung Heavy Industries from 2026, shipbuilding sources said.

They described the deal as a “win-win” for the companies, adding that it is the first time two major South Korean shipbuilders have partnered in this way.
