Havyard says it is to deliver a design package for the construction of a Havyard 832 L SE Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) at the Chinese shipyard Fujien Mawei Shipbuilding.

This is the third time in a row for Sinopec to select Havyard design for their fleet renewal program. Earlier they have used Havyard design for the construction of a Havyard 843 AHTS, which was delivered in 2012 and a Havyard 832 PSV, which is scheduled to be delivered from Fujien Mawi Shipbuilding in February 2015. The latest PSV is scheduled to be delivered from Fujien Mawei Shipbuildingin March 2016.

Havyard explains that it is a relatively new brand, but has become recognized as one of the leaders supplying design and equipment packages for the construction of advanced ships for the offshore oil industry. Since the start-up in 2005 they have sold over 70 Havyard design, and 11 for construction at Chinese shipyards.


"We have established a good foothold in in China, which is important for future growth and development of our design and equipment package deliveries," says Senior Vice President Sales in Havyard, Gisle Vinjevoll Thrane.

"China has the biggest shipbuilding capacity in the world and ambitions to continue to increase their market shares," Thrane continues. "Additionally, we see that Chinese ship owners are building more advanced offshore vessels. We have a good foothold in China and are recognized by the best offshore vessel builders and the ship owning branches of the two biggest Chinese oil companies Sinopec and CNOOC. This is a good foundation for continuing our growth in delivering design and equipment packages to the Chinese market."
