Oslo: A new Norwegian shipyard monitor has been launched. Yard Intel has been founded by Sasan Mameghani, whose background is as a market analyst.
On why Yard Intel was founded, Mameghani says, “I realised that the market was missing a provider of not only the necessary information, but also the processing of it. The task of researching and analysing the information was complex and time consuming.”
Yard Intel processes information from several providers as well as conducting its own research to add additional information.
Yard Intel provides building schedules, launching facilities and fleet overviews, covering almost 700 shipyards from some 80 countries, more than 1,000 shipowners and several ship designers.
“Our ambition is to make the best and most relevant information easily available for everyone,” Mameghani says, adding: “We are looking for investors with ambitions, who can see the potential of making Yard Intel the next ‘must-have’ in the maritime industry.”
Clients appear to be especially interested in the Chinese shipbuilding market at the moment, and particularly the white list published by Beijing. As a result, Yard Intel will shortly be publishing a report covering the issue, giving the user a comprehensive overview of each of the 59 yards on the white list.
