The marine industry is very international. Also, Valmet is working worldwide. Valmet’s vision is to become the global champion in serving its customers. Our expertise in Marine is built on more than 200 years of history.
Now, legislation from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) requires vessels to reduce sulphur oxides (SOx) and other emissions. To support shipyards and owners in achieving these targets.
Finland, a forerunner in the marine industry
The Finnish Marine Industries comprises high-technology maritime solution providers, leading marine equipment manufacturers, software and system providers as well as shipbuilding, ship repair and offshore yards, totally more than 1.000 companies.
“As part of the industry, Finland has for a long time worked to take the wellbeing of the environment and marine ecosystem into consideration. Changes and decision-making processes have traditionally been slow. The pace of change has now accelerated due to greater awareness and stricter environmental regulations. We want to be forerunners in the industry,” says Henrik Bachér, Acting Secretary General of Finnish Marine Industries.
