Chinese yards won a series of orders this week for vessels including container ships, gas carriers and offshore platforms, although customers in China itself dominated. But Chinese shipbuilders did win orders for container ships from Taiwan. Deals in South Korea included petrochemical product carriers and offshore wind platform construction. There is still hope that Finland could win an order for RoRo ferries from Australia, despite moves to have the ships built in Australian yards. More countries are considering state aid for financially troubled shipyards including Germany and the Philippines, as the current economic crisis means rules on state aid to industry have largely been suspended.
