Aker sets up Asian foothold

OSLO 11 January – Aker Yards, Europe's largest shipbuilder, is to set up a joint venture shipyard in Vietnam to construct offshore vessels. Aker's partner, Singapore-based Amanda Group will take a 30% stake in the venture. The shipyard will be located in Vung Tau in the heart of Vietnam's growing offshore operations. “Aker Yards will invest $16M over a period of three years. The yard will deliver the first vessel in 2009, and in full operation will have an annual capacity of three or four vessels, dependent of vessel type and size,” the company said. Aker Yards currently has 17 shipyards, of which the Aker Yards Promar in Niteroi, Brazil, is the only one outside Europe. This yard builds offshore vessels for the Brazilian market. At the end of 3Q06, Aker Yards had 74 offshore and specialist vessels on order, with 13 new orders won at that quarter alone. However, the combined value of new orders in the quarter fell to NK1.5Bn ($245M) from NK4.7Bn in the same period in 2005. The company predicted a slight softening of the market for platform supply vessels due to a big orderbook, but forecast that the demand for other types of offshore vessels, such as anchor handlers, would continue strong.
