    ShipyardXchange acquires critical mass

    News // January 4, 2002
    The ShipyardXchange project pioneered by Nordic shipbuilding group Aker Yards has obtained "critical mass" with eight yards and more than 100 suppliers having signed up for the e-procurement portal developed by and for the shipbuilding industry.

    "This confirms that ShipyardXchange's business concept has been accepted as a real value-add among the most innovative yards and suppliers. We now enter a phase where we need to prove that we really can meet our customers' expectations", says Harald Rafdal, CEO ShipyardXchange AS.

    In the last few weeks, member yards have distributed requests for quotations totalling a value of more than 20 million Norwegian Kroner to member suppliers through the portal.
