Two newbuildings entered the register on 30 June, increasing the number in NIS to 561.
-Active maritime policy works, says CEO in NSA, Sturla Henriksen.
The Government’s decision to ease up on the trade areas for ships in the NIS is a contributing factor. This change has led to the registration of more cargo- and constructionships. The traditional deep-sea fleet has also increased and all indications show a continued positive development for the NIS for the rest of the year.
Many shipowners have reported interest in future registrations under the Norwegian flag.
