Bergen, Norway, based Sartor Offshore has placed a NOK 300 million order for a Havyard 832 L platform supply vessel for delivery from the Havyard Leirvik shipyard in Sogn, Norway, in January 2012. The contract includes an option for a second PSV of the same design for delivery in June 2012.
"The contract is based on optimism within the industry," says Sartor CEO Roy Wareberg. "Currently, the vessel does not have a contract, however, the energy in the marked is intensifying and we regard the decision to build as forward looking and the right decision
Sartor Offshore currently has 24 vessels in its fleet and has begun an extensive renewal program. It says the Havyard 832 L design has set a new standard for medium-sized supply vessels, as it offers greater cargo capacity and more flexibility, better performance and lower fuel consumption than competitive models.
