Edda Accommodation cancels newbuilding

Edda Accommodation, part of Østensjø Rederi, has cancelled its shipbuilding contract for the accommodation vessel newbuilding Edda Fortis (pictured).

The ship was originally scheduled for delivery from Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea in June 2015, but construction was set back. It is not clear if the vessel has been completed.

“Due to extensive delays, it is now decided to cancel the project,” Edda Accommodation said today.

The 155-metre-long vessel was ordered in March 2013 and, upon completion, will have a total accommodation capacity for 800 persons in one- or two-man cabins, plus office space, a gym and sauna, two swimming pools, conference rooms and an auditorium.
