The asset beta measure the risk of the business (without any gearing).
Given that they new operation is building ships, we need to know the asset beta for shipbuilding. To find it we find another company who is in the business of building ships and their asset beta will be the measure of risk for shipbuilding.
I hope that you are not using the notes without watching the lectures because that would be a waste of time. They are lecture notes and it is in the lectures that I work through the examples and explain and expand on the notes.
