Volstad Maritime in Ålesund, Norway has taken delivery of their latest OCV vessel “Grand Canyon” . The vessel is built by Bergen Group at Fosen in Rissa, Trondheim and will go on a long term charter for Helix (Canyon).

“Grand Canyon” is of ST-259, a offshore construction vessel design developed by Skipsteknisk. Volstad Maritime has two more options of this design with Bergen Group.

We congratulate Volstad Maritime with the new vessel, which is the seventh ST-design for this company, and hope she will meet their expectations and contribute to profitable business for the company for many years to come.

We also want to congratulate Bergen Group Fosen for a fantastic job and express our gratidute for good cooperation through the building process of this vessel.
