Norwegian Electric Systems recently delivered its first total electrical system for an icebreaker, hull no. 122 Aleut HD843 ICE, built at Havyard Leirvik for the Russian shipowner FEMCO.

Through the yard, NES has two identical ships ready for delivery in 2016.

Since the offshore supply market has been weakened, NES has chosen to focus on other segments such as:

- Fishing vessels
- Ferries
- Fish breeding
- Passenger/ cruise vessels
- Ropax
- Merchant

NES won a very important contract to Port of Tallinn for 4 ferries which amounts to 100 mill NOK and is welcome these days. One month ago NES signed a new contract with GMS for the delivery of a complete electrical package for the self-propelled jack-up rig “Evolution”.

Norwegian Electric Systems has received positive feedback from the ship owner FEMCO as well as the yard for an excellent delivery.
