Prince Edward tours Daewoo for glimpse at U.K. ship project

Prince Edward of the United Kingdom visited Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering’s Okpo dockyard in Geoje, South Gyeongsang, yesterday to check the progress of MARS, a project charged with building four Military Afloat Reach and Sustainability tankers.

Prince Edward and Scott Wightman, the British ambassador to Korea, went to the shipyard with the company’s CEO, Ko Jae-ho, and toured its facilities for about four hours.

The contract, which Daewoo won in 2012, was the first that the U.K.’s Navy has ever given to a foreign company.

The company is projected to hand over the first ship in October 2015. The rest will follow in 2017.
