The Finnish Navy's first Kewatec Work 1920 has been launched in Kokkola


Monday 25 april, 2022

Kewatec manufactures four transport boats for the Finnish Navy, the first of which has been launched for testing. The contract with the Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command also includes an option for five additional vessels. Moving the boat from the production to the pier is one of the highlights of our shipyards. 

The boat was successfully launched on Friday 22 April in Kokkola. The ice cover has lasted longer this year than previously, but now the season could begin.

"Testing a boat in the water is interesting and requires precise work from the entire team." says shipyards project manager Veli-Matti Tapio. 

Kewatec Work 1920 is a fast workboat equipped with two Scania DI13 engines and Kongsberg water jets. The large deck, loading crane, and hydraulic bow ramp enable the vessel to transport a large variety of goods.
