RUSSO-NORWEGIAN NAVIGATION COMPANY
The Russo-Norwegian Society (or Company) was an important post-war trade organization. Krylov dedicates two chapters of his
book to his work on the board of this company. He tells two amusing anecdotes: how he determined the way to improve ship speed by looking at its model and about a drunk mechanic.
The Register (Adelaide) writes in its May 21, 1923 issue, "Severoles have entered into a large transport contract with a concern, which presumably is the Russo-Norwegian Navigation Company, Limited, recently organized in London with the Bergenske Steamship Company and the Russian agency Arcos as principal participants. According to the .director of Severoles, this institution and its subsidiary companies last year exported over 100,000 stds. of sawn timber — that is, about 90 percent, of the anticipated volume."
The Russo-Norwegian Company was dissolved in 1928. On March 30, 1928, The London Gazette published the Company Act about it.
