STX Norway Offshore has through its subsidiary STX Brazil Offshore entered into two new contracts for Norskan Offshore for the building of two Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) of AH 11 design. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2012 and 2013.
These vessels are the first of the new AH 11 design from STX Norway Offshore Design in Ålesund, designed with special focus on deep water operations. 
Roy Reite, President in STX Norway Offshore, said: "Since we established our operation in Brazil, we have built and signed contracts for more than forty vessels dedicated for the Brazilian market.
