The consortium has now reached meaningful progress on the main terms of the transaction.

However, there are a still a number of open issues that need to be solved, including a number of discussions and agreements to be concluded with other stakeholders.

If we all work on it and create favorable conditions for the yard, we see a positive long term future for the Turku yard and the whole maritime cluster in the region that the yard has a symbiotic relationship with.

The negotiations are continuing intensively and we are confident that we can make necessary progress within a short period”, said Minister of Economic Affairs Jan Vapaavuori.

The common objective for all parties is to achieve a final settlement soon.
