Helsinki Shipyard Oy, having received bids for the auction of the NB 517 announces that Swan Hellenic has been awarded the tender.
Helsinki Shipyard has exercised the right to sell the ship by tender, envisaged by the shipbuilding contract, after original buyer failed to take the delivery of the ship. The auction that ended at midnight on Friday, June 24, was satisfactory for Helsinki Shipyard, which analysed the bids and declared Swan Hellenic the winner.
