    Re: Hurtigruten ASA - news and comments

    Narvik always seemed like an odd choice.

    Surely, there must be advantages in having the headquarters in one of the ports that is actually on the route.

        In the new 2013 sailing list, there is a strange change compare to 2012.

        "Due to rule-change, the car-capacity will be redused to max 20 car pr ship"
        (not FM, TF anf MS)

        Can anyone please explain to me WHY.......and what kind of RULE this is ????

          My first thought was the size of the "open spaces" and the divisions / water tight doors that are used to make them smaller.... But, honestly, I have no idea actually.

            Hurtigruten didn't make money on the Aussie adventure after all??
            This from smp.no today: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article6851561.ece

            Never mind that the picture accompanying the article about Finnmarken is of Trollfjord, the Boskalis dredging and construction workers are described as "oljearbeidere" and the that the Gorgon Gas Field is called "oljefelt". Checking facts is not a requirement for posting articles on smp.no

              Det som er saken er vel at de ikke mottok de siste 99 av 697 millioner?

                Why didn't they get the last payment... was there any kind of mis-agreement between the charterer and Hurtigruten?

                      (I keep forgetting to keep it in English here...) I think the reason that they didn't get the last 99 millions, was a disagreement concerning the barge that Finnmarken was staying at in Australia. This barge supposedly became much more expensive than foreseen.

                        There was a Barge used as a "landing platform" moored alongside her Stbd. side for the duration. This should have been a very well known expense as there isn't anything other than the day rate involved. (No crew and no fuel cost)

                        The Supply vessel that was also a part of the deal would have been a more likely source of unforseen expenses, but that should not involve payment from the Charterers as it was part of the deal originally made between HRG and Boskalis. (Any "miscalculation" of expenses would be for HRG's account)

                        I have not found anything to explain this dispute.

                          On some occasion this barge also made a hole in Finnmarken's hull. The vessel returned to harbor for a short period of time to do repairs. Could this have something to do with the disagreement?

                            She was in Dampier for a few days. Hardly likely to cause dispute in the region of NOK 99 mill.
                            Any "downtime" NOT caused by Cyclones during the charter period should also have been deducted on a monthly basic, not after conclusion of the Charter.
                            As far as I know the vessel was not "off-hire" for any length of time, once installed in the moorings at Barrow Island.
                            Most likely the dispute is over the extensive cost when the vessel was mobilized and de-mobilized, incl. the waiting time in Freemantle and the long stay at Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore, unless the mob/de-mob was based on a lump sum each way.

                              Sounds like a dispute over which deferred costs were included which were not included in the contract price. Possibly the result of a poorly worded contract - and/or English-Norwegian translation difficulties, though that's hard to believe judging by the high standard of English I see here on CV.

                                Shipping Contracts are written in English only. No Norwegian translation required.
                                Place of Arbitration is usually specified as London and under UK Law. (Sometime Oslo, Singapore or New York is named, depending on who and what is involved in the contract)
