    Aker Brattvaag, Aker Langsten, and Aker Aukra under joint management

    Yard News // October 1, 2004
    As of today, all Aker Yards shipyards located on the west coast of Norway will be under common organization and management.

    Aker Brattvaag will be the name of the shipyard group resulting from this change. Aker Brattvaag will comprise the shipyards Aker Langsten, Aker Aukra, Brattvaag Skipsverft, Søviknes Verft, Aker Tulcea (in Romania), and Aker Promar (in Brazil), along with several shipbuilding-related group companies.

    The new Aker Brattvaag will have some 4,000 employees, of whom about 800 work in Norway.

    The goal of the reorganization is to increase the competitiveness of Aker Yards.
