According to VesselsValue data, Singapore shipowners are expected to receive 251 new vessels by the end of 2018, with the highest volume of new vessels received, and this year's new ship acceptance rankings are second only to China in the world.
VesselsValue stated that due to the still weak oil tanker market and the offshore market, some new ships are expected to be delayed. However, even so, the number of new ships received by Singapore's shipowners this year is still considerable. The previous delivery record of Singapore’s shipowners was still a decade ago, when only 200 ships were delivered.
Of the 251 new ships, most of them are oil tankers, with a total of 78 ships and 3.4 million dwt. Followed by the Marine Support Ship (OSV), a total of 75 ships. The delivery volume of bulk carriers and offshore construction ships was 39 and 22 respectively. Small dry cargo ships and container ships delivered the least, with 9 ships respectively. welding overlay flange

Swissco will receive eight AHTS.
Globally, Singapore’s shipowners have received the second largest number of new ships in the world this year, second only to China. Chinese ship owners are expected to receive 286 new ships this year. The third-largest shipbuilder in Japan is expected to receive 217 new vessels, the fourth-highest Greek ship owner will receive 159 vessels, and the fifth-highest Malaysian ship owner will receive 128 vessels. pipe fittings
