Valmet Opens New Engineering Office In Calgary, Canada

—Literature Available Valmet's Shipbuilding Group recently established a new engineering affiliate in Calgary, Canada, providing engineering services for Arctic marine and offshore projects mainly in Canada and the U.S. The founding partners besides Valmet are Arno Keinonen, D. Eng., and Ed Wetherell, M.Sc. (Eng.), both earlier employed by Dome Petroleum.

Although the company is new, the two partners represent some of the most extensive practical experience in Arctic offshore. The company is also able to offer the latest knowledge in the design of icegoing vessels and icebreakers in North America by combining the innovative knowledge acquired in Beaufort Sea development and the traditional Finnish knowledge based on long experience.

The founders have, for example, participated in the preliminary design of the Polar class-8 icebreaker for the Canadian Government.

This vessel will be the biggest icebreaker in the world.

"I believe that with the new company, we shall find the way to participate in the design and construction of Arctic vessels and offshore projects in Canada," said Harry Lindroos, R&D manager of Valmet's Helsinki -Shipyard, also a member of the board of the new company.

The turnover of the company is expected to grow to USD 2 million during the first year.
