SEOUL—Hyundai Heavy Industries said Sunday it has won a $1.1-billion order from Norway’s Statoil ASA to install a topside facility on a spar hull being built by the South Korean company.

The world’s top shipbuilder by orders said it would build the 21,000-ton topside facility, capable of producing 23 million cubic meters of oil and gas a day, by March 2016.

Hyundai has already won an $800-million order from Statoil to build the spar hull some 300 kilometers (186 miles) off the northwest coast of Norway.

The company said the cylindrical, partially submerged offshore facility will be able to store 160,000 barrels of gas condensate when it is completed in the second half of 2015.

    This show how Korea invested in Engineering and Technology. While the Philippines have the best seafarer the Koreans are the ship builders. Unlike in the Philippines most of our engineers are theoretician who cannot convert a design into real world. In addition, most engineers are pa porma lang when they pass the board exam, a paper exam based on text books and board exam reviewers. Mas ok pa yung technicians who do have skills to supervised and manage workers. It is time to re-engineer our engineers. One who knows both theory and skills. Most of our board exam passers are poor in psycho-motor puro cognitive lang.

      mga engineers kasi sa atin nag-aaral pa lang ng engineering ayaw ng humawak kahit martilyo dahil di daw nila work yon. So mas lalo na pag nakapasa sa board exam…
