Masa-Yards May Cooperate With Gdynia

Monday, November 08, 1999
Masa-Yards, a unit that Kvaerner has put up for sale, could cooperate in building vessels with the Polish Gdynia shipyard, a group official said.

Kvaerner officials said that through cooperation and lower labor costs in Poland, Masa-Yards could gain a competitive edge on other Western shipbuilders. Masa-Yards will reportedly ask the government and parliament to back a "reasonable" subsidy for the Finnish shipbuilding industry.
