Havila to acquire Kleven MaritimeNews // April 11, 2007
Sources in Norway suggest that Havila AS is in the process of acquiring 51 per cent of Kleven Maritime.
"Kleven's shareholders have accepted Havila's offer, and Havila wants to merge Kleven with Havila's existing shipyards and through Havyard Group establish a robust and effective international player within shipbuilding and ship design," said one source.
Havyard Group has a growing portfolio of new designs, including PSVs, AHTS and construction vessels which are being built in Norway and elsewhere. yards in the Kleven Maritime group such as Kleven Verft have benefitted from a substantial order intake in the last two years.
