Havila confirms newbuild to have safe cargo handling solutionVessel & ROV News // January 25, 2006
Havila Shipping in Norway has confirmed that it has signed a contract with Havyard Leirvik AS to build a MT6010 PSV.
Delivery of the vessel is scheduled for August 2007, and on delivery the vessel will enter into a long term contract with Norsk Hydro.
In December, Havila Shipping received a Letter of Intent from Norsk Hydro for a long term contract for a single PSV vessel. The contract period is for 10 years with five yearly options with a start-up of July 2006, so one of the company's vessels will act as a frontrunner until delivery of the newbuild.
Havila said the MT6010 will be noteworthy because it will be equipped with Odim's newly developed safe cargo handling system. "This, combined with the company's HSE policy, will contribute to a safe working environment onboard the vessel," said Havila.
