VIKING SUPPLY SHIPS

This company was set up by B&N a Swedish Company and Viking, a Norwegian Company to build and market three sisterships as icebreakers and support vessels. They are intended to break ice in the winter and handle anchors in the summer. 

We are going to update this site into the new format if B&N Viking build any more ships. No sign so far.

The company took on the AH San Fruttuoso in Dec 2004 with an option to purchase in March 2006. This ship became Odin Viking

As of February 2007 B&N Viking had become Viking Supply Ships, but we are not quite sure when. However they had also spawned an offshore company "Trans Viking" which has ordered a ship.

In November 2006 SBS became a subsidiary of Viking Supply Ships, but we will keep then separate until they appear in stripes.

In late 2010 a Swedish shipping company called "TransAtlantic" acquired all the shares in Trans Viking, but the commercial name of the offshore company appears to remain as "Viking Supply Ships", so that's what we will continue to call them.

Despite some internal differences on the Viking Website, it appears that they have now absorbed SBS and so this group of platform ships are shown here as well. May 2012.

At the time of the 2013 review it could be seen that there had been no changes to the fleet. Nor were there any at the 2014 review although the names of all but one of the ex SBS ships had been changed.

Updated 23rd October 2014.
