Awarded inspection and survey project on minesweeper

Bergen Group Services AS has been awarded an inspection and survey project for the minesweeper KNM Hinnøy. The project will mainly generate activity throughout Q1 2016.

The awarded project on the minesweeper is part of a framework agreement which the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organisation (FLO) has signed with Bergen Group Services AS and another two companies relating to ship maintenance and repair of some categories of military vessels.

“Bergen Group Services has over many to build up extensive expertise related to inspection- and maintenance of advanced high-speed craft for both civil and military customers. In the last months, our competiveness has been confirmed in a time when the competition is hard and the focus on both cost and quality is very demanding”, says Frode Johansson. He refers to the fact that Bergen Group Services AS this fall has been awarded two new framework agreements with established players in the maritime sector. Both the agreement with Volvo Penta to be included in their regional service network and the agreement with Marine Jet Power AB to sell and service the company's waterjet systems in Norway, have already benefited with increased activity at Bergen Group Services AS.

Bergen Group Services AS is a fully owned subsidiary of Bergen Group ASA. The company has its main focus on the market segments Maritime Service, Defense and Oil & Gas/Industry. Bergen Group Services had in 2014 a turnover of NOK 265 million and operating profit of NOK 24 million. The Company acquired earlier this year the assets and activities of Fjell Industries AS and thus secured larger and more modern production facilities,  enabling capacity growth both in relation to volume and size of the structures to be handled. The takeover has also added further competence both in width and depth to the company, and thus strengthened the basis for Bergen Group Services ambitions of further growth within both existing and new markets.
