Pictures of Drilling Rigs at DSME Okpo Shipyard

As of this writing, I currently work as a piping design engineer at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering or commonly known as DSME. It is a shipyard that builds drilling rigs, oil tankers, container ships, drill ships, bulk carriers, ferries, submarines, drilling platforms, FPSO, LNG tankers and a lot more.

DSME shipyard is located in Geoje, South Korea. It is in the south-most part of the Korean peninsula. In this city, Samsung Heavy Industries is also located making Geoje City the shipbuilding capital of Korea.

DSME ranks third largest shipyard in the world in terms of ship orders while Samsung Heavy Industries ranks second as the world’s largest ship building company. Hyundai Heavy Industries which is located in Ulsan (another city) is the world’s largest ship building company.
