MT Solviken Honored by DNV GL

Posted by Michelle Howard!!!

Since its delivery from the shipyard in 2007, crude oil tanker MT Solviken - managed by Wallem Europe - has had 15 Port State Control (PSC) inspections without a single PSC observation recorded.
On completion of the latest PSC inspection which took place in Primorsk in Russia, the PSC Inspector made a point of highlighting this achievement to the vessel.
On November 14, DNV GL's Senior Vice President, Regional Manager North Europe Region, Jon Rysst, presented a diploma to the ship owner Viken Shipping's Technical Director Vidar Winciansen at a small ceremony at Viken's office in Oslo. The diploma was then presented to the Captain and crew onboard the ship.
