Thursday, December 30, 1999

Kvaerner has been trying to sell four of its 13 yards - Mandal, Kleven and Leirvik in Norway and Govan in Scotland - since April, when it set a target of selling all its yards in 1999 as part of a sweeping restructuring. Officials said the group now hopes to have the sales finalized in early 2000.
