Wärtsilä signs major ship overhaul contract in Norway

Wärtsilä signed in December a EUR 9.5 million contract with Norwegian ferry operator New Kystlink AS for an overhaul project of Kystlink’s ‘Pride of Telemark’ ferry. This contract emphasizes Wärtsilä’s strength to be the total service provider.

The scope of the project includes a complete electrical system installation, the removal and major overhauling of five of the ship’s auxiliary engines, the onboard overhauling of two more main engines, as well as the renewal of 31 cabin interiors. The work is expected to be completed during the spring of 2008.
