Deltamarin wins design contracts for new ferries
Ship design specialist Deltamarin has increased its involvement in two ferry newbuildings and signed two design contracts with Merima, a Finland-based company providing turnkey interior solutions for passenger vessels. The contracts cover HVAC and interior design for Merima’s turnkey areas aboard the ferry newbuildings for Tallink and Kvarken Link. The ships are to be built at Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) shipyard in Finland.
Deltamarin’s commission for the Tallink vessel also covers basic and detail design services for the hull, machinery and electrical systems. The value of the contract with RMC is about €7.5M.
The work will be carried out over a period of about 16-18 months at Deltamarin’s offices in Finland and Poland with the assistance of network companies. Similar work is also included for the Kvarken Link ship where the value of the contract with RMC is around €4M.
Over the years, Deltamarin and Merima have cooperated in many ferry and cruise vessel projects at several yards. “We at Deltamarin are very pleased with the contracts for two reasons. Firstly, it is our privilege to restart the partnership with Merima after a couple of years. Secondly, it is a great starting point to do it at the shipyard in Rauma, where we have previously successfully cooperated, and where we are also otherwise heavily involved in projects. We look forward to further developing the cooperation with Merima, providing excellent services for them and helping them to execute these two newbuildings at RMC,” said Deltamarin’s CEO Janne Uotila.
