Herøy shipping company Havila Shipping adds three ships in circulation due to the decline in oil and gas industry. About 70 people have been laid off or dismissed.
The two platform supply vessels Havila Fortune and Havila Borg and AHTS Havila Mercury will be put into circulation as soon as is practical, informed the shipping company.
– There seems to be a safer alternative to putting boats in circulation, not to spend unnecessary money, says CFO Arne Johan Dale in Havila Shipping, to pursuits.
Havila Borg and Havila Fortune have operated for a period in the spot market, while Havila Mercury has had a contract with Statoil.
Dale talked about the most dismissals.
– More than half of those affected are foreign seafarers, both hired and employees, says Dale.
Previously, the company had six of its ships in circulation.
