Viking Supply Ships AB (publ) Interim report Q1 2024

The market for AHTS-vessels started out with more activity than expected after a soft period in the fourth quarter of 2023. Contracts for some of the vessels outside the North Sea in the beginning of 2024 resulted in improved utilization for the fleet. The North Sea spot market has throughout the quarter been volatile, but Viking Supply Ships has by an extended geographical market scope achieved higher utilization on its vessels compared to same period last year. The utilization was higher despite the fact that we had more available vessels in operation in 2024 as two new vessels were added to the AHTS-fleet at the end of 2023. However, fleet-vide average day-rate was lower in the first quarter 2024 compared to the same period the year before.
