Finland-based shipyard Meyer Turku, owned by German Meyer Werft, furthers its investment programme in its Turku shipyard.

Finnish Meyer Turku invests 75 million euros in its shipyard based in Turku, Finland. The announcement follows two other major investments, a new gantry crane and a modernised cabin factory, published earlier this year.

With a focus on new steel storage and pre-treatment facilities, the investment aims at improving the productivity of the shipyard.

“With this investment we are working on productivity improvements and dimensional accuracy improvements to boost the following process steps,” explains Jan Meyer, CEO of Meyer Turku. “Since these are very special and unique facilities, our investment team is working on creative and innovative solutions supported by modern IT technology.”

The production of the new steel storage and pre-treatment facility starts in the autumn of 2016 and will be ready in the spring of 2017.
