Havila Shipping ASA is a Norwegian shipping company based in Fosnavåg in the western Norwegian municipality of Herøy in Fylke Møre og Romsdal . It is part of the Havila Group .


The shipping company was founded in 2002 and has been listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange since 2005 . Havila Shipping owned 23 special vessels at the end of 2017, including supply vessels for oil drilling platforms and work vessels for the oil industry.


A subsidiary, Havila Kystruten AS , is to provide four of the eleven ships required for the daily journeys of the Norwegian postal service Hurtigruten from 2021 . Two ships, the Havila Polaris and the Havila Pollux , were ordered from the Hijos de J. Barreras shipyard in Vigo . They should cost around 200 million euros per ship, have a capacity for 700 passengers and run on LNG and batteries. In September 2018, two more ships were ordered from Tersan Shipyard, the Havila Capella and the Havila Castor .

Construction at the Barreras shipyard was suspended in August 2019 due to various problems. In November 2019, the shipyard terminated the construction contracts.
