As CEO of Bergen Group Fosen, Mr Straumsheim will also join the management team of Bergen Group's Shipbuilding division.

"In recent weeks we have had a strong focus on identifying and implementing the necessary actions in order to regain the profitability at Bergen Group Fosen," said the company.

to strengthen the financial management, project financing and the strategic
cooperation at the division level," he explained. 

"The division's two newbuilding yards have experiencedstrong growth in their orderbooks, and the market outlook is perceived as positive," said the company.

Bergen Group will complete three large ships by next summer. The first of these, an offshore construction vessel, will be completed and delivered to the customer Volstad Maritime AS this autumn. In spring of 2013 the first cruise ferry for Fjord Line will be delivered. The hull of the second cruise ferry is under construction in Poland, and will arrive at Fosen for outfitting and completion in late fall this year. This cruise ferry will be delivered to the client in the summer of 2013.
