Schwerin (dpa / mv) - According to the city, Stralsund is not affected by the insolvency of the Fosen Yard Emden shipyard. Another subsidiary of the Norwegian holding company has signed a lease agreement with the city for parts of the maritime industrial and commercial park Volkswerft, the city announced on Wednesday. This is "completely independent" from Emden. There is no reason to doubt Fosen's success in Stralsund.
The Emden shipyard Fosen Yard belongs to the Norwegian Fosen Group. The Norwegian shipbuilder took over the shipyard after filing for bankruptcy in 2019. Over the past year, Fosen Yard in Emden has made a name for itself building oversized structures for deep sea salmon farms. On Wednesday, an application for insolvency was received by the responsible district court in Aurich.
