'The full picture' contract

27. August 2004

A contract was signed today between Flekkefjord Slipp & Maskinfabrikk and our company. The contract refers to equipment and services for a new research vessel, being built for the British company Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

This contract confirms the solid position enjoyed by both Flekkefjord Slipp & Maskinfabrikk and us in the research vessel market.

In many ways the vessel is similar to the modern well-equipped vessel G.O.Sars owned by The Institute of Marine Research in Bergen Norway. That vessel was built by Flekkefjord Slipp & Maskinfabrikk in 2002/2003 with almost the same equipment as the featured in the contract signed today.

The new vessel from NERC will be equipped with the following KONGSBERG products:
