According to Valmet, the new agent will provide market studies, contacts with German shipowners and shipyards as well as sales support and networking.
“We will form a well-functioning team on the German market where there is a strong marine industry,” said John Weierud, director, Marine, Automation.
Valmet has a long track record in supplying scrubber systems and automation systems to container, general cargo and cruise ships. Development work on ship automation systems started in the early 80s with Damatic Classic and has continued through to today’s Valmet DNA.
“Our target is to make vessels greener, more efficient and more profitable thanks to the use of advanced automation and scrubber solutions,” commented Torsten Ecks, owner and founder of Ecks Marine.
