German propulsion specialist SCHOTTEL's management board approved the acquisition of a 3,000-square-meter plot of land in Saint Petersburg, Russia, paving way for the construction of a new service center to strengthen OOO SCHOTTEL's market position in the region.

The company said it expects to plan and build an administration building with repair workshop and warehouse site on the purchased property within the next two years.

Founded in 2011, OOO SCHOTTEL has equipped a number of inland waterways vessels with propulsion systems, especially in the cargo and passenger transport segments. The decision for a new service center addresses the customer's requirements in terms of thruster maintenance, SCHOTTEL said.

"Our future facilities will provide our valued customers with the significant advantage of reduced transport time. Especially in case of larger repair works, we will be able to offer on-site assistance," said Sergey Chestny, General Manager of OOO SCHOTTEL. "Our plans involve a local stock of assembled big parts for module replacement. This warehouse stock will considerably facilitate and shorten the regularly required 5, 10 and 15-year class surveys."

The future facility's portfolio will cover local content requirements as it will allow local assembly of units with components such as propellers and nozzles, the company said.
