Aker Yards announced on Tuesday that a 400 million Norwegian crowns (some 49.28 million euros) was signed with the GDV Shipping company. Within the contract, Aker Yards will build a ship designed to carry provisions for sea platforms. The Romanian company will only provide the careen, all equipment being provided by the Norwegian partner.

The ship is scheduled for launching in the last quarter of 2009.

According to another article in the agreement, the Romanian shipyard may also provide a similar ship in 2010.

Investor Aker Yards currently holds 17 shipyards in Brazil, Finland, France, Romania, Germany, Norway and Ukraine.
