Eidesvik new building, Viking Princess, was named in an official ceremony in Bergen, Norway, on September 14th.
Viking Princess is byggnr. 347 from Kleven Shipyard, and is the sister ship to Viking Prince, which was delivered in March this year.
Eidesvik Offshore and Kleven are pioneers in the construction of gas-powered vessels, and built the world’s first gas-supply vessel, Viking Energy, in 2003.
Kleven is the leading supplier of advanced gas-powered vessels in Norway, with seven vessels delivered and two new on order.
Viking Princess goes directly into a long term contract with Statoil.
