Norway’s Østensjø Rederi won new contracts for two of its vessels and renewed a long-term service contract.
Norske Shell has awarded the company a contract renewal for tug services at the Nyhamna terminal. Østensjø Rederi has been contracted at the terminal since 2007 and the new contract is for five years firm with two additional two year options.
Kenneth Walland, CEO of Østensjø Rederi, commented: “This is yet another proof of the value of the long-term relations we have established with our charterers and we are very happy and proud that Shell, after their tender process, has awarded and renewed the contract with Østensjø Rederi.”
Additionally, VBMS has taken light construction vessel Sun Enabler for operations in the renewable sector. The contract commences in November and continues through the winter period.
Another construction vessel, Edda Fauna, has also secured winter work having been awarded a contract by a major European energy company for operations in the renewable sector.
