Havila lays up three ships, lays off 70 crew

Norway’s Havila Shipping has laid up three vessels due to “market conditions” it said in a statement yesterday.

Platform supply vessel pair Havila Fortune and Havila Borg, along with anchor handling tug supply vessel Havila Mercury will all be laid up “as soon as practically possable” the company said.

Around 70 crew will lose their jobs as a result of the layups.
