On Samsung Village we have profiled many of the talented individuals that have contributed toward making Samsung a leader in multiple industries around the world. Today we continue our series of interviews by sharing a conversation we had with Samsung’s Mun-keun Ha on the state of innovation and technology in the shipbuilding industry. Ha, who heads Shipbuilding and Drilling at Samsung Heavy Industries, played a key role in developing the world's first ice-breaking tanker which has been hailed for promoting energy efficiency. The first-of-its-kind vessel is essentially two ships in one – an ice breaker and a shuttle tanker – which means fewer ships travelling through the icy Arctic seas.
When you purchase new electronics goods, you must have noticed they usually come in heavy packaging. Well, what do you usually do with the packaging waste? Could you think of any creative way of “recycling” them rather than throwing them away into a recycle bin?
