The affiliate company of Hurtigruten, KVE Holding, is taking full control of Norway's Kleven Shipyard (in Ulsteinvik Norway) through buying the yard's remaining 60% shares.

In September last year, Hurtigruten bought 40% shares in Kleven, after the shipyard was hit by financial crisis.

Under the latest deal, Kleven Maritime Contracting, Kleven Maritime Technology and Kleven Shipyard are sold to Hurtigruten.
