Framework contract with the Defence

Bergen Group Services AS has been awarded a one-year extension of a framework contract relating to ship maintenance and repair of some of the Norwegian Armed Forces` vessel categories.

 

The extension is valid until 1 August 2018.

The value of the one-year extension of this framework agreement will depend on the amount of work that the Defence will call upon from external resources to be carried out under this agreement. This framework contract has since August 2014 generated a number of smaller jobs, in addition to two major assignments with inspection and survey project (5-year classing) on two minesweepers with a total order value of NOK 25-30 million and a total project period of 8 months.

 “Bergen Group Services is pleased that the Defence has chosen to exercise the option to extend this framework agreement until 1 August 2018. The lack of an extension on the frigate-contract as from 1 July this year does not change the fact that we still consider the Norwegian Armed Forces to be a preferred and important customer in the coming years. We maintain our ambition to uphold the company's well established expertise and capacity related to carry out complex maritime projects and service operations" says CEO Frode Johansson in Bergen Group Services.
