Six ships have recently docked at Aibel Haugesund yard for overhauling, classification and upgrading.
Deep Wave and Deep Investigator from subsea services player DeepOcean are undergoing upgrading/classification and demobilisation/smaller upgrades.
Edda Fides and Edda Fonn are visitors from shipowner Østensjø, while Normand Oceanic has arrived from shipowner Solstad. Both Edda Fonn and Normand Oceanic will undergo crane upgrades while at quay.
Finally, Rem Poseidon, also from Solstad, is in for various services, including a traditional hull surface treatment in the drydock.
With a total of six ships at quay at once, the yardstay capacity is fully utilised.
“Good references from previous assignments, competitive terms and the yard’s flexibility have been important to ensure new contracts. Even though we are facing a though market, this will remain an important focus area for Aibel moving forward,” says Bjørn Tollefsen, EVP Modifications and Yard Services.
