Scana propulsion picked for Bourbon arctic AHTS

MARCH 5, 2014 — Scana Industrier ASA reports that its subsidiary Scana Propulsion has signed a contract with Vard's Brattvåg shipyard for delivery of a propulsion system for the Arctic AHTS ordered from Vard last month by Bourbon Offshore Norway (see earlier story).

The equipment will be delivered to the shipbuilder by Scana by the end of 2014.

"We are proud to be selected by Vard and Bourbon Offshore Norway for supply of propulsion system to this sophisticated AHTS" says Hallvard Pettersen, Managing Director of Scana Volda. "The order intake for Scana Propulsion in 2014 has been promising, and reflects a positive signal of higher activity in the market."

In addition to the Vard contract, Scana Propulsion has signed contracts for deliveries of tunnel thrusters and propulsion systems to a total of four container vessels at Remontowa Shipyard for the ship owner Royal Arctic Line, one delivery of gearbox to MAN Diesel and Turbo for fishing vessel at Karstensens Shipyard, and one propulsion system to Havyard Ship Technology for a live fish carrier.

The total value of the signed orders is approximately 53 MNOK (about $8.8 million).
