Myklebust shipyard signs its fourth wellboat contract with Sølvtrans Rederi
The Myklebust shipyard in Gursken has signed its fourth wellboat contract with Sølvtrans Rederi in Ålesund, the company said in its release. The vessel is based on Kongsberg NVC 389, the design being used for one vessel already under construction at Myklebust for Sølvtrans. Loading capacity is 4000 m3. The new hull will also be built at the Turkish shipyard Hat-San. Delivery of what will be newbuild no. 76 from Myklebust Verft is set for October 2021.
The contract fits well with Myklebust's strategy to build more vessels for the same customer using familiar technology and design. "This is also a big vote of confidence from Sparebanken Møre, to provide construction financing for yet another newbuild at Myklebust Verft," says Hide.
The latest contract gives Myklebust an order backlog of about NOK 1 billion for newbuildings and aftermarket. The yard has 135 permanent employees.
