Vard´s “problem vessel” sold

Published 13.09.2018 // 10:47 CET

The expensive diving vessel with building number 801 from Vard Søviknes has finally been sold.


Harkand Group ordered the vessel in 2013 and it has been completed for a long time ago. Due to major financial problems, the shipping company was put under administration and could not take delivery of the ship and the contract was canceled. The advanced diving support ship has since been for sale. Now a buyer has entered into an agreement with Vard, it emerges from a stock market announcement. Neither price nor buyer is stated. “The SPA is signed with an undisclosed international customer”, it is stated in the message. Vard releases capital with this sale and there will be a one ship less that sails out of their “stock”.
