Vard Marine Inc. is a consulting naval architecture and marine engineering company established in 1983 and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of VARD Group AS in Norway, a Fincantieri company. The company itself has undergone numerous ownership changes, the most recent being the evolution of Vard Marine Inc. from the purchase of STX Marine (STXM) from STX Offshore and Shipbuilding Group in July 2014. This new ownership gives us access to a design and construction database from both Vard Group and Fincantieri that we can bring to projects worldwide.
