One of the major Nordic ship engine manufacturers, Finnish Wärtsila, was able to maintain its position on the global market last year as a supplier to the ship building industry.

In its financial report for 2012, the company points out that the total number of new registered ship contracts decreased by 35 percent, to 1,090 during 2012.
