Viking Supply Ships moves four vessels to Norwegian flag

Swedish-headquartered supply shipping company Viking Supply Ships (VSS) has decided to move four of its AHTS vessels from the Danish International Ship Register (DIS) to the Norwegian flag. 

According to a statement on Thursday by Denmark’s largest maritime trade union CO-Sea, all fixed and long-term employees on the vessels have been offered new contracts under the NOR. The employees’ DIS contracts will be terminated and replaced by new, NOR contracts.

The union stated that the transfer of four anchor handling tug and supply vessels, Loke Viking, Njord VikingMagne Viking, and Brage Viking, will happen during the first quarter of 2017.

The shipping company’s aim is to optimize the overall shipping operations by bringing together major parts of the fleet under the Norwegian flag to meet the increasingly strong competition in the offshore market.

The Danish Metals & Maritime Department (DMMA) set up a meeting with the respective Norwegian trade unions and the company for January 5, 2017. At the meeting, the parties wll clarify the details related to the transition of employees.
