Let us take charge of the shipyard contracts for you

Engaging in new building of vessels is a major investment. The vessel must be well designed and the shipyard must work according to the ship owner's specifications. ERRIA has extensive experience in the preparation of technical specifications, reviewing/approval of drawings and other technical documentation.

The Consulting Division at ERRIA has been in charge of and completed more than 45 newbuildings - mainly sophisticated projects - at different shipyards in Bangladesh, Bulgaria, China, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Singapore, Turkey and Vietnam.

Aside from the fundamental technical competences that the supervisors must have, the Consulting Division is focused on employing supervisors with a strong will and ability to work in various cultures. This ensures the best results of our customers new building projects.

In November 2005, ERRIA was the first Scandinavian ship owner to order a ship to be built in Vietnam. The order was for a 2900 DWT containership to be built according to Western specifications. Our Consulting Division expects Vietnam to be the next important ship building nation and we have made agreements that ensure capacity for further shipbuilding in the coming years.
