Koja Group gets its biggest order

26 Nov 2011

Finnish air conditioning system supplier Koja Oy recently signed a contract with Meyer Werft GmbH for the delivery of the entire air conditioning systems for two 4,200 passenger ‘Sunshine-project’ cruise ships for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.

The vessels, under construction at the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, are 350m in length. The contract includes options for delivering the AC systems also for the third and fourth vessel in the series. “This order, valued at tens of millions of Euros, is our biggest single order ever,” said Martti Sippola, CEO at Koja.

Koja’s supplies include the basic and 3D design of the air conditioning systems, including also the electrical and automation design, and the delivery of all AC systems for the public areas, machinery areas, galleys etc, and for all the cabins.

The important AC components will be manufactures at Koja's Jalasjarvi factory and the system design, mostly in 3D, will take place at the Tampere factory, both located in Finland.

The order provides work for Koja until year 2015 and, if the options are realised, until year 2017.

The Koja Group's strategy is to focus strongly on energy efficiency. This was also a decisive factor for the yard and ship owner when they selected the supplier. Important were also Koja's other recent major cruise ship AC system references. The company recently supplied the air conditioning systems for the world’s two biggest cruise ships ever built, the Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, for the same owner. Koja's references to date include some 20 cruise ships and numerous other passenger vessels.
