Samsung Heavy Industries, a local shipyard, on Wednesday unveiled its detailed self-restructuring program which centers on a cut in workforce and having executives return part of their salaries.

Earlier, the shipyard has said it will conduct a self-rehabilitation scheme worth 1.5 trillion won ($1.27 billion), including asset sales and a cut in employees. Its creditors provisionally approved the program.

According to the plan, Samsung Heavy will reduce its workforce by 1,500 through an early retirement scheme this year, and further cut its employees down the road. Also, its executives will return some 30 percent of their salaries starting from July.

The shipyard also plans to suspend part of its production facilities, including floating docks, in gradual phases to tide over a fall in new orders.

Samsung Heavy, a shipbuilding unit of the country's top conglomerate Samsung, also proposed a stock sale, spawning speculation that its affiliates, including Samsung Electronics, may join forces to salvage the embattled shipyard.

Samsung Electronics is the largest stakeholder in the shipyard with 17.62 percent, and other affiliates, such as Samsung Life Insurance and Samsung SDI, also own stakes.

Some market observers speculate that Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong may participate in the potential stock offering.

Last year, the group's apparent heir expressed his intention to buy stocks in Samsung Engineering, to help the group's plant-engineering unit improve its worsening financial footing.
