ScanMarine Celebrates Founding With New Contracts

ScanMarine Group of Sweden AB has recently celebrated its fifth anniversary with the completion of two contracts for SweFerry, located in Helsingborg, Sweden. Work on the car/passenger/train ferry M/S Aurora involved updating the ves- sel's interior areas, including work on the vessel's money exchange area, specifically, the installation of security measures. Scan- Marine's contract for the M/F Trelleborg — a ferry similar in function to the Aurora — involved demolition, rebuilding and installation of new units — including the vessel's reception area, office and archives.

The company has great faith in the refit and newbuild market, according to chairman S.H.

Sorensen, and is reportedly involved in the first Swedish civil newbuilding project for a Swedish owner at a Swedish yard since the slowdown experienced in the 1980s. In 1995, ScanMarine also fulfilled contracts for other prominent maritime interests, including: fire and sound insulation work for a Chinese owner at Mathias Thesen Werft GmbH MTW in Germany; management and supervision work for high-speed megayacht monohull constructed by Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. in Korea; and involvement in interior planning, installation and delivery of materials for a Russian research vessel under contract with Oresundsvarvet AB, Celsius Industrier, Sweden.
