Enersense International Plc subsidiary Enersense Works Oy and Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) have signed a new agreement on outfitting work for two new liquefied natural gas-fuelled (LNG) car and passenger ferries at Rauma shipyard, according to Enersense International on Thursday (21 July).
The signed contract covers the most demanding technical areas of the ferries ordered by TT-Line Company, for example steel and piping installations in the main engine room and LNG tank area, as well as insulation work.
“We are very pleased with the new agreement, which will further deepen our partnership with RMC and create continuity for several years of cooperation at Rauma Shipyard. We look forward to bringing the long-awaited project into production and to participate in its construction in such a significant role,” said Mikko Lampinen, Chief Operating Officer of Enersense’s Smart Works business.
According to Enersense, the new agreement in the TT-Line project is strategically important for Enersense’s Smart Works business, as the implementation of LNG projects contributes to the Group’s vision of being a significant promoter of a zero-emission society.
“RMC’s networked operating model is based on long-term and strategic partnerships. We want to continually strengthen our partner network. Through truly networked and open cooperation we can develop policies and processes. Enersense is a good example of a company that wants to develop and at the same time develop the Finnish marine industry network in cooperation with us,” said Ville Laaksonen, Chief Operating Officer of RMC.
“I would like to thank RMC for the good cooperation built on our long-term partnership and for the trust. Our business in the marine industry has been systematically developed and grown and this agreement shows that we are doing the right things with our personnel. The project will further strengthen our organisation and network, and we will also utilise possible synergy gains with Enersense Offshore,” said Jaakko Leivo, EVP of Enersense’s Smart Industry business area.
