Enersense International Plc
Press release, 25 October 2021 at 3:45 p.m.
Pori Offshore Constructions Ltd, which operates in the Smart Industry business area of Enersense International Plc, a provider of zero-emission energy solutions, has signed an agreement with HaminaKotka Satama Oy on the construction of a pontoon. The pontoon will be constructed at Enersense’s site in Mäntyluoto, Pori.
The project will be carried out as a lump-sum contract, and it consists of the construction of a pontoon weighing approximately 610 tonnes and a ramp weighing approximately 200 tonnes. The pontoon is specifically designed for loading and unloading operations of ro-ro vessels as an extension for the existing pier. A ro-ro (roll-on/roll-off) vessel refers to a ship on which the loading takes place by rolling from the side, stern or bow of the vessel and no crane is required to load it.
HaminaKotka Satama Oy invests in and develops the possibilities for the ro-ro terminal to increase capacity and to create conditions for the port’s customers and operators to receive even larger vessels and flows of goods also in the future. The design of the ramp has taken into account the needs of the shipping companies and the port operator, as well as their views on vessels and cargo handling in the near future.
At its peak, the workforce required for the project will be around 80 to 90 people. Employees currently laid off at Pori Offshore Constructions Ltd will be invited back to work as the project progresses. The value of the transaction is significant compared to Pori Offshore Constructions’ current turnover. The project begins immediately, and the pontoon is scheduled to be completed in the summer 2022.
Through a transaction completed on 4 October 2021 Enersense International Plc acquired the entire share capital of Pori Offshore Constructions Ltd. The agreement signed now with HaminaKotka Satama Oy is Pori Offshore Construction’s first agreement as part of Enersense.
