Rederiet Høj, a Nordic marine contractor, expands fleet with 2 vessels for construction activities in Northern Europe

International construction activity requires additional capacity at Rederiet Høj in Horsens, Denmark. The company has thus signed purchase agreements for two more vessels to carry out marine construction work in Northern Europe

With this expansion of the fleet, Rederiet Høj A/S accommodates increasing activity in the areas of excavation and dredging of port infrastructure, construction of piers, breakwaters and revetments, preliminary work for the laying of cables, boulder clearance, establishment of new artificial reefs, etc. 

The two vessels provide additional capacity for the existing fleet. The company took possession on the 1st of June. The vessels will be painted and renamed MS Aase Høj and MS Alberte Høj after the grandmother and granddaughter of owner Søren Høj.

Michael Normann, the CEO who joined  the company on the 1st of April 2022, states: 
”The company has long had a desire to acquire additional capacity. The two new vessels are known in the market and fit nicely with the existing fleet. The timing is perfect in that the investment supports the overall positive developments experienced by the company in the Northern European market, with a focus on Norway, Sweden, Germany, UK, and the Baltics. With this additional capacity, we will be able to strengthen our international position in the areas of port construction, marine construction, and offshore wind.”

Rederiet Høj is now recruiting crew for the vessels and will continue to do so for the next few weeks.
