NKT Victoria Cable Layer Gets Ship of the Year Accolade

The NKT Victoria cable laying vessel has been awarded the ‘Ship of the Year 2017’ prize in Norway.

Norway’s Labour and Social minister Anniken Haugli presented the award, in the presence of HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, during a ceremony at the NorShipping exhibition.

The prize was presented to the vessel owner president and CEO of NKT Michael Lyng, shipbuilder Kleven’s CEO Ståle Rasmussen, design company Salt Ship Design’s CEO Arne Stenersen and captain of the vessel, Svein Ole Sæter.

“I am proud that NKT Victoria is awarded the Ship of the Year Prize. With this vessel, we are now able to offer our customers complete cable solutions, from design and manufacture to installation and service – as one of a very few cable providers in the world,” said Michael Lyng, president and CEO of NKT.

“As proud shipbuilders, it is a wonderful recognition that NKT Victoria has been proclaimed Ship of the Year. This project is a great example of the strength of Norwegian ship design and ship building in tough international competition,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven.

“We are honored to see NKT Victoria being awarded the prize, and our ship designers have really enjoyed the great teamwork behind the successful vessel,”  added Arne Stenersen, CEO of Salt Ship Design.
