Danish suppliers are reaping the benefits of the expansive Norwegian offshore industry, including Maersk Drilling and other companies and shipyards in the maritime clusters of Frederikshavn and Esbjerg. But the Norwegian shipyards are having the best time with the boom of the Norwegian oil- and gas industry, according to numbers published by Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.
Among the major recipients of new orders are Kleven Maritime and STK OSV Holding, which - according to the Norwegian business newspaper - are responsible for USD 514.8 million and USD 431.8 million, respectively, of the USD 1.56 billion of total orders this summer.
