Norway: Kleven Maritime Invests USD 52 Million in New Facilities

Kleven Maritime’s extensive investment programme will result in new facilities for both the group’s Kleven and Myklebust shipyards. To increase newbuild capacity at Kleven Verft, in Ulsteinvik, Norway, a 100m quay and new 40m x 150m drydock will be built, while a similarly dimensioned floating dock has been earmarked for the Myklebust Verft in Sande. The NOK300M investment package also includes a new piping workshop and automated welding machines for both facilities.

Construction is due for completion by the end of 2013.

Last year Kleven Maritime, Norways’s largest Norwegian-owned shipbuilding group, registered record results. Operating profit was NOK 238.7M, an increase of 96M compared with 2009, which itself was a record year, and 2011 is looking healthy with an order reserve of 10 ships, with a combined value of NOK3.7bn.

The shipbuilding and repair group is currently waiting to hear if it has won the contract to carry out the extensive repair work to the Hurtigruten-operated passengership Nordlys, which was engulfed by fire last month.

The 11 204gt vessel is currently in Aalsund, Norway, undergoing temporary emergency repair work.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
