Norwegian term or phrase:oppdrag
The term is used repeatedly by a number of companies who were contracted for different aspects of the same project "Thank you for the "oppdrag"
It's quite customary to conclude dealings on a contract( and when the contract is being given to a particular company, that one says "(Tusen) takk for oppdraget", meaning "thank you (very much )for the contract".
This, of course, is not something specific for ship-builders, but can be applied to all types og business.
Just a polite way to finish dealings, or after the job has been completed.
I cannot make it more complicated than this... :-o))

job/assignment, cultural equivalent : "Thank you for using (company name)"
Explanation: Hi. It is entirely correct that the phrase is a polite phrase simply meaning "Thank you for the job". I believe that Anglophones often use a corresponding polite phrase of "Thank you for using (company name)". Best regards Helle
