The conditions of the Finnish archipelago are among the most challenging to navigate in the world. Safe boats and experienced pilots provide shipmasters with invaluable assistance to guarantee safe navigation
Hand-built premium quality vessels for professional use
Uudenkaupungin Työvene Oy was founded on 11 March 1987. The company started producing smaller aluminium workboats at an inland location in the Orivo industrial area, in Uusikaupunki, Finland.
We build our ships in steel or aluminium, or in a combination of both. To build also smaller ships like this is one of our core strengths. Combining steel or aluminium is typically used for lowering the centre of gravity of a vessel, often necessary in a professional vessel, but lighter ships is also key for the ongoing green conversion of the marine industry.
Always moving forward
Today, Työvene is a company in transformation. We move from being a traditional shipbuilder to a more agile and future proofed company, ready to lead the way for the marine industry of tomorrow. We bring all the learnings from the past and combine them with the innovations of tomorrow.
We know ice. The next generation of ice class multi-purpose vessels is an exciting opportunity for us as well. We know the European countries no longer want to buy traditional ice breakers, which creates a huge possible market for us, especially in the Baltic region.
Autonomous ships will change our industry in a fundamental way. This step is important and calls for extraordinary co-workers, precision management and professional business partners.
Green renewal is also growing and an exciting new business opportunity, especially if combined with our expert area, state of the art vessel efficiency. There are numerous older vessels out there in need of conversion to greener propulsion the coming years.
Closely connected to this are trends surrounding climate neutral shipping and underwater noise reduction. The journey towards fossil free steel and climate neutral aluminium has also begun and of course something we are eager to explore and include in our offer.
