Hyundai Heavy Industries Co said that it will conduct on-site inspections of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co in the face of strong opposition from unionized workers over the planned merger between the two local shipbuilders. Hyundai Heavy and the state-run Korea Development Bank have attempted to complete their due diligence of Daewoo Shipbuilding’s Okpo shipyard in Geoje, 350 kilometers south of Seoul. But their entry into the shipyard was blocked by unionized workers at Daewoo Shipbuilding.

Although, the merger process can go on without on-site inspections, Hyundai Heavy said it still wants to visit Daewoo Shipbuilding’s main shipyard before completing the deal.

In March, Hyundai Heavy signed a deal worth an estimated USD 1.6 billion with KDB to buy Daewoo Shipbuilding. The bank is the largest shareholder of Daewoo Shipbuilding, with a controlling 55.7 percent stake in the company.

Under the deal, Hyundai Heavy was divided into a subholding company and a reorganized Hyundai Heavy Industries that will carry out its shipbuilding and offshore business.
