Ulstein Verft Builds Up Its Capacity
At Ulstein Verft, work is underway to install a new 250-tonne travelling crane in the dock hall. With this additional crane, Ulstein Verft becomes the first Norwegian yard capable of performing 500 tonne indoor tandem lifts. This investment is an important measure to strengthen the company’s shipbuilding activity long-term.
“We have also purchased two multiwheelers to transport large sections around the yard. The procurement of new transport and lifting equipment will make us even more flexible. We will now be able to handle larger and heavier blocks,” says production manager Roar Riise.
“ULSTEIN aims to further develop its shipbuilding activity. We are good at integrating systems, we have solid outfitting expertise, and otherwise take steps to shorten the project time in order to further strengthen our competitiveness,” says Riise.
Investments have also been made at Ulstein Verft’s production facilities in Vanylven, where a new environmentally friendly bevel plasma burner will be installed this October.
