The vessel, a newly developed Havyard 858 L WE design, having the shipyard NB 123, is scheduled to be delivered second quarter 2017. The contract is valued at approximately NOK 700 million.
Healthy order book in a challenging market
As the industry in general, Havyard is experiencing tough competition in the market due to the situation in the oil industry. In spite of this, Havyard’s shipyard in Norway has a relatively good order book, where 8 vessels is to be delivered within the summer of 2017. After the purse seiner "Smaragd", to be delivered in July this year, the yard will deliver three icebreakers, a live fish carrier, a platform supply vessel and a windmill service vessel, as well as the new subsea vessel.
Lasse Stokkeland, head of the business area Ship Technology in Havyard Group and responsible for the shipyard in Norway, is pleased with the order book and look forward to a lot of good work ahead. – We have been through a time where our capacity has been stretched to the limit and we have built many prototypes simultaneously, says Stokkeland. - It meant that we did not have as good control of the production as we wanted and the results were weaker than expected. We have implemented many measures to strengthen project execution and the result is that we are back on schedule and budget. The order book we have before us now has a better composition of sister vessels and prototypes and is better adapted to our overall capacity. Our focus is to continuously work on restructuring and streamlining to further increase our competitiveness. We see that we still have great potential to be more cost effective, while we will maintain the requirements for quality and delivery precision. This way we will ensure profitable construction at our shipyard in Norway also in the future, concludes Stokkeland.
