Finnish Shipyard Industry Has Work For Years Ahead


New ownership and new cruise orders have improved the situation of Meyer’s Turku shipyard. The shipyard will complete two ships for TUI this and next year. A third TUI ship will be finished in 2017 and the fourth one in 2019. In February, the Turku shipyard confirmed an order for a fast car ferry for Tallink to be finished in 2017. Tallink also has an option for an additional ferry.

Meyer signed a deal with the world’s largest cruise company Carnival for four cruise ships which will completed during 2019-2022. Two of the ships will be built in Turku shipyard. The on-going projects and new deals vastly improve the Finnish shipyard cluster’s situation. The large orders also mean work for smaller companies in the field. (Source:, 11.4.2015)
