NORDIC AMERICAN OFFSHORE

Ulstein have a way of promoting their own activities by starting up shipping companies and then building ships for them. The latest venture in this area is that of Blue Ship Invest, for which they have constructed six PX121s, all painted blue and managed by Remoy and Atlantic Shipping. All six ships have been delivered between early 2012 and late 2013.

In November 2013 the whole fleet of six ships was sold to a company called Nordic American Offshore (NAO), which is an offshoot of Nordic American Tankers, a company owning 20 double hull Suezmax tankers. NAT is quoted on the New York stock exchange.

As of the 2014 review the company has ordered four newbuildings from Vard which are apparently due for delivery some time in 2015.
