Increased Norway Asian shipbuilding

The STX OSV shipbuilding group is backing Norwegian and international business by establishing its new yard in Vung Tau.

Director Roger Vassdal tells Aftenbladet, “Vietnam was chosen because it is a country with increasing offshore activity, has many young people, and that has a tradition for and experience in shipbuilding.”

15 Norwegian personnel are currently at the yard, a modern facility with over 700 employees.

“We are being cautious in the beginning, building simpler ships to try things out. Moreover, we put emphasis both on making good progress and managing to complete ships with a competitive delivery time.”

The first ship was delivered in 2010. Work on number five of six anchor handling ships for Aker DOF Deepwater has just been completed, with delivery of the last one expected in March next year.
