Norwegian yards disappointed: Lost 5 out of 5 major contracts

Today’s announcement that the main contract of Statoil’s Dagny field has gone to South Korean Daewoo means that five out of five major contracts are lost for the Norwegian shipbuilding industry which now fears a loss of competences.

Norwegian shipyards had been looking forward to today’s Statoil decision with excitement. Statoil was to decide if the Dagny platform was to be built by the Norwegian maritime cluster or if it was to be built abroad.
