Basking in brilliant spring sunshine the champagne bottle hit PSV Juanita’s ship’s side when the vessel was named at Leirvik quay at Stord on 20 May this year.
Godmother in full control of the event was Unni Gjellesvik from Statoil. Nearly 700 people representing locals and invited guests attended the ceremony. Everybody present was offered to get on board to have a closer look at the majestic vessel and were treated to music, high-quality fish soup and cake.
Juanita is fixed on a 2-year charter party with options to Statoil and has already started her service. Built at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik and designed by Salt Ship Design in Leirvik, Juanita is the first vessel of the Salt 100 design. With a length of 88.9 metre and a breadth of 20 metre, the vessel has a deck area of 1035m2. New innovative technology and improved fuel economy, have resulted in Juanita being nominated to Skipsrevyen’s “Ship of the Year” award for 2014. Link to Skipsrevyen's video.
