    Ulstein Design secures first contract outside Group

    Yard News // September 3, 2004
    Ulstein Design has provided more details about the contract Merwede Shipyard has signed with Norwegian owner Solstad Offshore for a P105 platform supply vessel.

    "This is Ulstein Design's first contract outside the Ulstein Group and is very important for us," said Ulstein Design's President, Tore Ulstein.

    "As Ulstein Design's first foreign contract this is a very important project. It gives us an opportunity to demonstrate that we can carry out a project in a high-quality manner outside of Norway", said Ulstein Design's Vice President Erik Andreassen.

    The first Ulstein P105 platform supply vessel was built in 2003 and Ulstein Design has received good feedback from customers regarding the design.

    Earlier this year contracts were signed for two construction projects of the same design, as well as one option.

    "Among other things we are going to deliver the propulsion system, engines, cargo system and dynamic positioning system. In addition, through the Ulstein Group's electronics company Ulstein Elektro, we will deliver all the marine electronics, switchboards, consoles and starters," said Mr Andreassen.
