now have 20 vessels in our fleet, whereof all 5 large size vessels are 100%
owned. With a modern fleet of vessels we are in a good position to gain on an
upturn in the market we are operating in going forward says Martin Nes,

million.Following the closing of the acquisition SDSD will have 100% ownership
in 5 large size PSVs and have part ownership in 15 medium size PSVs.

Fletcher Shipping will act as Technical and Commercial Manager for Northern PSV
AS, while Clarksons Platou Project Finance AS will act as a Corporate Manager.
