Miniature Sheet: The North by the Sea - Ships

M/S "Nordmand Arctic" and "Veslefrikk" Oil Platform

With a coastline like ours, it is only more than natural that, as far back in time as we can remember, people along the coast found ways to travel by sea.

Viking ships took us both westward and eastward, and as ships developed into fishing vessels shipbuilding became a cornerstone of Norwegian coastal industry.

The more than 40 years of development of the Norwegian oil-based industry presented the creative environment around shipbuilding with new challenges. When the Norwegian oil adventure started, the shipbuilding industry along the Norwegian coast was ready. The platforms were being built, but they were not going to manage on their own out at sea. The supply boats, support vessels that were loyal supporters in all types of weather, were developed by the shipbuilding industry along the Norwegian coast. These vessels are called PSV, platform supply vessels. They transport necessary goods and supplies and carry out many different types of assignments at sea. Their cargo includes provisions and reserve parts, but they also carry out many tasks that require a high level of technological competence from the crew.
