by Jon Grevatt

Japan’s Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding and the maritime division of T7 Global Berhad, an investment holding group based in Malaysia, have entered an agreement to co-operate on building ships for the Vietnam People’s Navy (VPN) and Vietnam Coast Guard (VCG).

The new agreement, signed in late August and announced in early September, highlights increasing efforts under way in Japan to explore defence export opportunities in Southeast Asia.

In a filing to the Bursa Malaysia stock exchange, T7 Global said the memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed by T7 Marine – its wholly owned subsidiary – and focuses on collaboration with Mitsui across “various activities and to explore new business opportunities to supply ships” to the VPN and VCG.

According to the MOU, the two companies will leverage each other’s experience and expertise in exploring shipbuilding opportunities in Vietnam and look to secure new business contracts in that Southeast Asian country. The MOU runs for three years, with an option to extend.

The MOU offered no additional details about the companies’ joint engagement in Vietnam.

A spokesperson from Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding told Janes on 8 September that the company would look to build “naval and patrol ships” for Vietnam through the new agreement, although specific locations for shipbuilding projects had yet to be agreed. He also confirmed that Mitsui has no shipbuilding facility in Vietnam.

Mitsui is one of Japan’s biggest naval shipbuilders. The company’s experience and capabilities include the construction of destroyers, survey ships, patrol vessels, and landing platform docks for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF).
