KonKraft to review the competition situation

The competitiveness of Norwegian shipyards is the main issue as KonKraft establishes a new working group with members from the industry.

Aibel's deputy CEO Erling Matland will be a part of the group, which will assess the competition situation for the Norwegian shipyard industry.

Much of the oil technology industry in Norway is doing well, but the most recent large contracts have been awarded to foreign competitors outside Norway.
