Shipbuilding is a very important industry in Norway. Most of the Norwegian yards are involved in shipbuilding and construction for the offshore oil and gas industry. However, at the same time those yards do not target the shipbuilding and ship repair market. Also, the shipbuilding industry in Norway is open to foreign participation and investment.
The new orders have now been confirmed by shipyards. Congratulations to Vard Aukra and Sletta Verft shipyards for signing new shipbuilding contracts.
