“The Blue Diamond” to become Havyard’s new headquarters In March next year, the Havyard Group AS will bring together its activities in Havila’s new headquarters, “The Blue Diamond”. text: Geir Bjarte Hjetland illustration: Architect georg grimstad

When planning of a new headquarters for Havila and Havyard started, Per Sævik, major owner and chairman of the board, said that he wanted something different. And different it certainly is. Architect Georg Grimstad produced drawings and a model that everybody was delighted with, and in March 2008 the dream will become reality at Mjølstadneset, just outside Fosnavåg.

Havyard will have the first floor at its disposal. The ground floor will contain an exercise room and a cafeteria, and the second and third floors will be the “the blue diamond”

headquarters of Havila. The total floor space in the new building is about 2,500 square meters.

In March next year, the Havyard Group AS will bring together its activities in Havila’s new headquarters. Architect: Georg Grimstad

“We are very excited about the new building, and we believe that ‘The Blue Diamond’ will be another example of the quality behind the activities of both Havila and Havyard,” says Hallvar Ulfstein, Finance Director in Havila AS, .

Garware Shipping was incorporated on 20 September 1976. Garware Shipping commenced business with General Cargo Vessels.

Mr Punwani laughs a bit when he thinks of the little things in life that are needed to create good business relations, and friendships. “I remember the first time I met Geir Johan. He picked me up in his 1981 Ford Granada and we found out that we have a shared interest in cars. And I have to say that I believe that a man who is really passionate about cars, is equally passionate about his job.”

During our interview, Ravindra Punwani is very busy on board Garware’s new ship, the ”Kamet”. Like the rest of the Platform Supply Vessels in the fleet, the vessel has been named after some of the world’s highest mountains – in the Himalayas. A proud symbol of Garware’s success in the Indian offshore industry in recent years.

”Garware started its shipping activities in 1976. Now we are the third largest private sector shipping company in the offshore segment in India. That is a very satisfying situation. But we are not resting there, we still

Garware Shipping left General Cargo Vessels in 1998. In 1983/1984, the company built 5 AHTSVs in Singapore for service with ONGC. The company sold one AHTSV to Middle-Eastern buyers on private terms in April 2005. Currently, all four of its AHTS are on long-term charter to ONGC. The company changed its name to “Garware Offshore Services Ltd.” in January 2006. Took delivery of “Everest”, a UT 755 Platform Supply Vessel (built 09/2000) in December 2005.

“However, just as it is necessary to invest in good vessels, it is also important to focus on human resources. We are, among other things, very concerned with HSE work. Our focus on safe operation, systematic efforts in human resources and good values, gives us a competitive advantage.

The company operates and owns or partly-owns a fleet of 25 ships, including newbuildings. The fleet includes three area standby vessels, six platform supply vessels (PSV), four AHTSs, three field standby vessels, eight standby vessels and one ROV Subsea vessel. The company has approx. 440 employees: 390 Norwegian and 30 Faroese maritime personnel, and 20 office staff.

“As a family-owned shipping company, it is of course a great strain and challenge that we are now investing heavily in newbuildings. We are therefore also dependent on having good partners,” says Anne Jorunn.

The connection between Havyard and Havila is stronger than ever, as demonstrated by the new vessel built at Havyard Leirvik.

The godmother for “Havila Mars” was Eva Altman. She is married to Thormod Hope, vice president of logistics in Statoil. Eva, who also works in Statoil, gave a splendid speech in honour of the new ship, as did Mayor Knut Nærø of Herøy municipality, where the headquarters of both Havila and Havyard are located.

event was a beautiful manifestation of the collaboration between Norway and India. The godmother for the christening ceremony was Mrs S. A. Garware, the shipowner’s wife. The ceremony was based on both Norwegian and Indian traditions. “The owners expressed that they were very happy and satisfied with ‘Kamet’, which is ship number two of four scheduled to be built at Havyard Leirvik. After the naming ceremony, a dinner was held for 70 guests at SAS Bryggen Hotell, with both Indian and Norwegian food on the menu,” says Bente Nesse, Senior Vice President of Havyard Leirvik.
