Havila Harmony is a vessel that is very well suited for the kind of projects we currently have, as well as the nature of the project opportunities we see in the market. As we have repeatedly said, an important part of our operational strategy is to co-operate with shipowners renowned for high quality performance, which we have experienced first hand in our first year of operation with the Havila Subsea spread. We look forward to continue the good cooperation with Havila Shipping in the years to come,” said Jostein Alendal, CEO of Reach Subsea.
