New Gothenburg Fire, Rescue & Safety Station

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Wilhelmsen Ships Service has opened a combined new warehouse and fire, rescue & safety station in Gothenburg. Both are already operational. The station is conveniently situated only a kilometre from the port of Gothenburg and approximately ten kilometres from the city centre. The positioning of the station will enable Wilhelmsen Ships Service to provide its range of services to both the east and west coasts of Sweden, to Denmark and to the southern part of Norway.

The region of Gothenburg is of strategic importance for Wilhelmsen Ships Service since it is home to car manufacturers and other major Swedish industry.  It is the largest port in Scandinavia with a number of maintenance dockyards. The station was officially opened on 25 November in the presence of 50 customers and representatives from the area. The Fire, Rescue & Safety station will service fire extinguishers, safety equipment and liferafts.

The Gothenburg station is also undertaking Wilhelmsen Ships Service’s Liferaft Exchange Programme where service due liferafts are exchanged on the dockside for dated ones, and the company is expecting official approval from the liferaft manufacturers for this during the first quarter of 2010.
