Establishes design company in Trondheim


Fosen Yard and Ulstein Design & Solutions are establishing joint design company in Trondheim

Ulstein Design & Solutions and Fosen Yard have agreed upon establishing a joint design company in Trondheim. The new company will be named Fosen Ulstein Design & Engineering AS (FUDE).

Gunvor Ulstein, chair of the board in Ulstein Design & Solutions and yard director Anders Straumsheim in Fosen Yard comment:

- By establishing this company, we want to become a leading partner within the Ro-Pax segment. Our aim is to develop innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for passenger ferries to be built both in Norway and in the rest of the world.

Since February this year, the two companies have cooperated on the design delivery to Color Line’s new environmental passenger ship Color Hybrid. The vessel will be delivered from Ulstein Verft in 2019.

Ulstein Design & Solutions announced in June that they wanted to establish a design company in Trondheim. This new team will become a part of FUDE, that will be established 2.1.2018.
