Baltic Workboats supplying two vessels to Estonian Navy

20th April 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Estonian Navy has placed an order for two force protection boats from Baltic Workboats which will aim to plug smaller gaps in the Navy’s capabilities.

The contract is valued at €3.9 million ($4.24 million).

As a result of the contract, at least 50 people will be employed by the company until 2021 on the island of Saaremaa which has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

Margus Vanaselja, Chairman of Baltic Workboats, said: ‘This is a very important contract for us at a very complicated time and we are very grateful that the Estonian state took such a bold step and turned directly to a local builder.’

These vessels are also expected to strengthen the activities of the Estonian police and border guard agencies by identifying foreign ships, commanding sea units and conducting live-fire exercises and navigation training.
