Norwest Ship Management has expanded its fleet with two multipurpose (MPP) vessels following a purchase agreement with Smyril Line. The vessels, named MV Hvitanes and MV Eystnes, are scheduled for delivery in April 2024. 

Both Hvìtanes and Eystnes will be included in the existing fleet of Norwest Ship Management which after the said purchases will consist of 11 vessels. The purchase of the two MPPs reaffirms the company’s belief in the shortsea MPP sector.

Norwest Ship Management added that MV Hvìtanes will sail under the new name of Link Polaris, while Eystnes will be renamed Link Aurora.

“We welcome both MV Hvìtanes and MV Eystnes to our fleet, and we are looking forward to offering these vessels together with the rest of our fleet to both new and existing customers, providing first-class customized shipping service to our valued partners,” Norwest Ship Management said.
