“The yard has previously constructed several of our designs, and we have a good cooperation with them. In addition to our project team in Ulsteinvik, strengthened with resources by our colleagues in Poland and Croatia, we have had a local team in Ningbo that has been involved in coordinating the commissioning and completion of the vessel”, says Project Manager in Ulstein Design & Solutions, Johannes Røren.
