SCHIFFKO becomes Wärtsilä Ship Design Germany - new name for established service

Wärtsilä Corporation has re-named its Hamburg-based ship design company SCHIFFKO GmbH to Wärtsilä Ship Design Germany GmbH. The change is effective from 1 June 2008. The name SCHIFFKO is retained as a product name for the company's ship designs.

Wärtsilä acquired SCHIFFKO GmbH at the end of 2006 with the aim to create more value for its customers by combining its ship power solutions expertise with ship design knowledge.

"SCHIFFKO has very successfully provided marine consultancy and ship design services to its customers for 53 years. We will continue this tradition under the Wärtsilä name, and further develop our services to ship owners and shipbuilders", says Barend Thijssen, Managing Director of Wärtsilä Ship Design Germany GmbH.

The company specializes in the design of merchant ships series, most notably container vessels. It is furthermore active in the design of offshore vessels, like pipe layers and offshore construction vessels, and special vessels, like icebreaking research vessels. Wärtsilä Ship Design Germany also provides marine consultancy and newbuilding services.
