Valmet will supply automation and information systems for two luxury expedition vessels being built by Helsinki Shipyard Oy in Finland for Russia's largest river cruise company Vodohod Ltd.

The 113-meter-long and 20.2-meter-wide vessels will have an ice class of PC5 and a passenger capacity of 157 persons. Their draught is 5.7 meters, and cruising speed is 14 knots. The newbuilds will operate both in the Arctic and Antarctic waters as well as in the tropical waters during the spring and autumn seasons.

Valmet's delivery includes a Valmet DNA automation system, an information management system, project engineering, factory acceptance testing, commissioning and training. The order was placed in the fourth quarter of 2019, and the value is not disclosed. The automation solutions will be delivered to the vessels in August 2021 and handed over to the customer in November 2021.
