Norwegian yards do not get paid

Norwegian yards that have built modules for the new Norwegian frigates which are under construction at the Spanish yard Navantia, do not get paid for their work, Aftenposten reports. When the Spanish yard was awarded the contract to build five frigates worth altogether NOK 16.6 billion, it was stipulated in the agreement that Norwegian yards would be sub-contracted to build modules for the new naval vessels. 

However, Navantia now refuses to pay for the modules built in Norway, the newspaaper writes.

The Spaniards claim that the Norwegian Defence must first carry out a quality control of the Norwegian built sections, before the Norwegian yards will be paid.

The Norwegian Defence disagree, saying this is not part of their responsibility.

- We do not have any contract with the Norwegian sub-contractors, only with Navantia. It is Navantia's job to carry out the (quality) inspection, says Commander Per Erik Goransson.

The Norwegian Defence Department has now been informed of the problem.
