The Future of the Fleet

With around 140 Norwegian offshore vessels in lay-up, summer season is coming up and there seems to be some brighter skies ahead in the offshore markets. In the maritime sector, some vital questions are being asked:

- what state are these vessels in after years in lay-up?
- what opportunities exist in recommissioning?
- how many of the laid up vessels are coming back?
- when will we see new builds again?

YoungShip will be visiting a Island Offshore vessel in Ulsteinvik to learn about lay-up and recommissioning. Before that we will be given presentations from some of the parties involved in this process to give us a wide perspective on the way forward:

- DNV GL v/ Tore Larsen, Principal Surveyor

- ACEL v/ Martin Skåravik, Dept. Manager Power Systems

As always with YoungShip, there will also be plenty of opportunity for socializing. Please save the date, more info coming up.

First, dinner and presentations at Kongsberg Evotec offices in Ulsteinvik/Saunesmarka, meetup between 17:00 and 17:15
