Wartsila To Produce Ship Accommodations In Korea

Wartsila Accommodation Systems, Korea Ltd., a company producing ship accommodations, was recently established by Wartsila in the Republic of Korea. The company, in which Wartsila is major shareholder, is situated in Masan near major shipyards.

The first delivery from the factory in Korea will take place at the end of this year and will comprise ship cabins for two RO/RO cargo vessels. Wartsila has already delivered shower room units from Finland to most South Korean shipyards.

The Wartsila Piikkio Works is also delivering cabins for a car/passenger vessel that will be built at the Split shipyard in Yugoslavia for the Finnish shipowner's SF-Line. This vessel is the seventh passenger vessel to be built using the Wartsila Accommodation System. The cabins will be shipped completely out- fitted. The contract includes an option for cabins for a second ship.

According to the manufacturer, the success of the Wartsila Accom- modation System is basically due to flexibility, high quality and efficient prefabrication. Ship cabins are also built with the Wartsila System under license in Great Britain, Norway and Italy.

Wartsila, a large internationally oriented company, has a worldwide reputation as a builder of luxury cruise liners and advanced passenger/ car ferries.
