Rauma-Repola Deck Machinery And Aquamaster Propulsion Join Forces In New Company

Hollming Ltd. and Rauma-Repola Oy, two Finnish marine companies, have joined forces to make the best use of their trade names. In the future, the production of Aquamaster propulsion units and Rauma-Repola winches will take place under the same roof.

Aquamaster-Rauma Ltd. is the name of the new company, and it will be owned 50/50 by Hollming Ltd. and Rauma-Repola Oy. It will acquire the Aquamaster business from Hollming and the deck machinery business from Rauma- Repola.

Rauma-Repola Deck Machinery Works has designed and manufactured deck equipment since the 1940s, first to satisfy the needs of the company's Shipbuilding and Marine Technology Division, exporting most of its production. At present, the total number of units manufactured amounts to nearly 6,000.

Aquamaster production began in 1965 with 50-hp units, but already the intention was to develop a unit for professional heavy-duty operation.

Now, Hollming's Aquamaster azimuth thruster has 20 percent of the world market for this type of propulsion system. More than 1,000 units in the 120/3,000-kw range operate in various oceangoing, coastal and inland waterways vessels.
