The order from MEYER WERFT has taken VEO’s marine business to a whole new level. Half of the ships will be built at MEYER WERFT’s shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, while the other half will be built at the company’s Turku shipyard in Finland. Only the first of the five projects has, to this date, been delivered on VEO’s part, but the ship has not yet been finished. The second project is well underway, while the remaining three will be delivered in the coming years, however no later than 2021.
So far, VEO has delivered the first project according to schedule and everything has run smoothly. Previous to this, MEYER WERFT was a new customer to VEO, which means that adjustments have been made in accordance with customer specific needs. Overall, the project has run smoothly and according to plan.
