The Croatian industrial group, DIV Group has signed an agreement to purchase Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, from Hurtigruten.
This was announced in a press release on Monday.
‘‘I am extremely pleased on behalf of all employees at Kleven that we are now in the process of acquiring a new and solid owner for the yard. Through a difficult period, we have managed to deliver fantastic ships, as well as retain the high competence at the shipyard,” said CEO Kjetil Bollestad.
The agreement is expected to be completed within the next few weeks, after the documentation process is completed.
Even with a new owner, the company’s name would remain as Kleven Verft and the company continues as its own entity.
