Ville Paananen, in charge of this project at PMC, also considers his team's ability to adapt to changing situation a great strength.
"When we start designing from scratch, the project lives and surprises come up despite good planning. But when we're actively involved in the project all the time, we can react quickly and flexibly."
According to Paananen, previous project experience is essential: "When you identify the project stages where the needs for changes or problems may arise in advance, you can anticipate them and ask the right questions already in beforehand."
The project for hydraulics on two vessels at the same time was made an opportunity at PMC. The software programs of the valves were designed so that the same template can be used in future projects. In the long run, the solution will result in savings for the customer.
For Uudenkaupungin Työvene, the strong position of PMC in the Nordic countries brings practical benefits. The main market areas of Uudenkaupungin Työvene are the Nordic countries and the countries around the Baltic Sea.
"We assume responsibility for the vessel until the end of the warranty period, but the ferry is in use for 20-30 years and the owner needs maintenance services throughout the whole life cycle. It's important to us that we can point out reliable partners to our customer, also when our own cooperation has ended."
