Norway’s Myklebust Verft has won a fourth wellboat contract from Ålesund-based Sølvtrans Rederi. The owner has chosen a Kongsberg NVC 389 design, similar to one of the vessels ordered previously from the shipbuilder.
The wellboat will have a carrying capacity of 4,000m3 and is due for delivery in October 2021. Myklebust managing director, Inge-Jonny Hide, commented: “We are proud to have landed successive contracts with Sølvtrans. This new contract allows us to utilise positive synergies and learning between projects, together with all the suppliers.” This latest deal boosts the value of Myklebust’s order book to about NOK 1 billion.
