The article reports on the decision of Stolt-Nielsen Transportation Group (SNTG) to order four double-hulled parcel ships from SLS Shipbuilding in South Korea. The ships will follow the design of the four tankers that SNTG ordered in June 2005 from another South Korean yard, ShinA Shipbuilding. SLS acquired ShinA in early 2006. The new order represents a continuation of SNTG's successful partnership with the yard and is part of the company's ongoing fleet replacement plan, says SNTG CEO Otto Fritzner.
