Turku Repair Yard
Turku Repair Yard, founded in 1989, continues the long traditions of Finnish ship repairs in Naantali. The company also used to operate in the ports of Turku and Helsinki, but since 2003 all operations have been concentrated in the Port of Naantali. Turku Repair Yard’s complex is located on the island of Luonnonmaa and the company employs about 100 employees. During busy periods an additional 250-300 workers can be employed.
The Luonnonmaa shipyard is one of the largest dry docks in Northern Europe. Close to a hundred ships visit the dock annually and the personnel have long experience of demanding repairs and conversions. In addition to the repairs performed on site, Turku Repair Yard offers voyage repair services in ports or at sea. When, for example, a customer’s ship in Rotterdam needs repairs, the voyage repair unit of Turku Repair Yard is available.
The advantage of Naantali, from the Repair Yard’s point of view, is that the port and the oil harbour both have heavy traffic, meaning potential customers. In addition, the location of the port at the junction between two major roads is logistically favourable. Turku Repair Yard also cooperates with other companies operating in the Port of Naantali, mainly Finnlink, whose boats ship large cargo items to Sweden quickly and flexibly. All in all, the Port of Naantali offers excellent opportunities for Turku Repair Yard, both now and in the future.

Neste Oyj is one of the leading oil refining and marketing companies in Northern Europe. The main business area of Neste Oil is the development and manufacture of high-quality clean traffic oil products. Several of Neste Oil’s oil products are based on own technology, the most recent addition to the range being next-generation bio diesel, which helps to reduce greenhouse emissions.
The Finnish refineries of Neste Oyj are located in Naantali and Porvoo. In addition to these, Neste Oil has a widespread retail network in Finland and the Baltic area and a modern fleet for transporting crude oil and oil products. The company employs 4 500 professionals of whom 400 work in the Naantali refinery. The Naantali plant refines over 3 million tonnes of crude oil per year.
The history of Neste Oil began during the war in the1940s when it was realised that Finland had no domestic oil refining capabilities or sufficient oil reserves. The state built the first oil reserves in Naantali Tupavuori between 1943 and 1948, and in 1948 the reserve was transferred to be the responsibility of Neste Oy. The refinery was built in the harbour in 1957. The main reasons for choosing the port of Naantali were the sheltered channel and strategically well-placed harbour.
Nowadays the Neste Oyj refinery covers 300 hectares in Naantali. Over 400 ships dock at the refinery every year and they carry about 4 million tonnes of oil and oil products. The crude oil to be refined at Neste Oil is mainly shipped to Naantali from Primorsk, Russia, in heavy tankers. About 40% of oil products are shipped to customers, both domestic and foreign. The rest of the products are transported by road to domestic customers.

Finnlines - Finnlink
Finnlines is a leading shipping operator of ro-ro and passenger services in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. The Company is a part of the Grimaldi Group, one of the world’s largest operators of ro-ro vessels and the largest operator of the Motorways of the Sea in Europe for both passengers and freight.
Finnlines ferries are dedicated to the transport freight and passengers between Naantali, Kapellskär in Sweden and Långnäs, Åland Islands. There are 2 daily departures from Naantali. Freight is transported under the brand of “Finnlink” and passengers under “Finnlines”.
At the end of April 2018, MS Finnswan (former MS Nordlink), which boasts more than 4,200 lane metres, 200 cabins and a capacity for 500 cars, will be redeployed on the route between Finland and Sweden, where customers have invited Finnlines/Finnlink to increase capacity. The Finnswan will be one of the first ships of this size to service Finnlines’ customers between Finland and Sweden.
Finnlines’ strategy is to systematically invest in the fleet in order to serve its customers better and to further increase the environmental performance of the fleet. Finnlines has completed an investment programme to reduce the sulphur, Co2 and other emissions and started a new investment programme, a ship lengthening programme, aimed at further improved energy efficiency. All in all, Finnlines places great emphasis on safety and environmental matters.
The port of Naantali is a strategic choice for Finnlink. Both Naantali’s and Kapellskär’s locations are optimal in terms of freight traffic. The sea voyage is short, only eight to nine hours. With its timetables Finnlink is able to offer efficient freight transport, between Finland and Sweden, of the type required by professional cargo transport.
The road network to the port of Naantali is also excellent. Big trucks do not need to drive through crowded city centres as the cars can reach the highway straight from the harbour. The other advantage is the waterway that stays open all year round. Clear waterways are a must when the traffic is heavy and the ships must sail on time, round the clock, regardless of the weather or season.
“The port authority in Naantali fully understands the basis of Finnlines’/Finnlink’s business, along with the timetables and quay needs and they have been very supportive to any investment which have been necessary for a sound and customer-oriented development of the service”, says Antonio Raimo, Line Manager, Finnlines Plc.

Finnfeeds Finland Oy
Finnfeeds Finland Oy is part of the global Dupont group. The company produces and develops food and fodder improvements, industrial enzymes, sweeteners and sugar. Finnfeeds Finland Oy is part of the group’s Animal Nutrition division and specialises in the production of crystalline betaine (trimethylglycine) extracted from sugar beet-based solutions. The process uses a chromatographic separation method, patented by Danisco. The Finnfeeds Finland production facility is the largest betaine factory in the world.
The history of the Naantali plant goes back to 1951, when Oy Juurikassokeri Ab was founded. Sugar production started two years later. The new technology-based separation process started in 1978 and since 1979 the factory has produced betaine. The entire production effort was concentrated on the production of betaine in 1990, when sugar production in Naantali ceased.
Betaine is used in several grocery and chemical industry products, for example in animal fodder to increase growth, in cosmetic products such as moisturiser and to lessen skin irritation and in food as a functional ingredient. Betaine is also used in agriculture to increase the crop, especially in harsh growing environments.
For Finnfeeds Finland Oy, the location of the plant in the port of Naantali is a strategic choice, since most of the material arrives in sea containers or tankers from Europe and the USA. In addition, 97% of production is shipped to Europe, Asia and the Pacific, the Americas and Africa. The favourable logistical location of the plant in the port of Naantali in the logistical import and export hub is essential for the effective operation of the factory. The sheltered, always open channel is also a great advantage for Naantali, as many ingredients used in betaine production come from countries whose fleets are not meant for heavy winters and icy conditions in the north.
“For many years we have been very happy with our cooperation with the port of Naantali. Communication has always been positive, and the companies operating in the harbour have been able to find clear synergy benefits. Our company was the first to start cooperating with Fortum power plant for the supply of energy, for example.”

ExxonMobil Finland Oy
ExxonMobil Finland Oy Ab operates a lubricant factory in the port of Naantali. The factory produces and packs lubricants under Mobil brand, such as Mobil 1, well known to car owners all over the world.
Since 2003 the factory has been responsible for exporting Mobil products to Russia cluster and Baltic countries in addition to the domestic markets. Majority of the factory’s lubricants go to export. The factory works in the harbor in two shifts and employs around 80 workers. In addition to lubricant manufacturing, the unit has its own quality assurance laboratory in Naantali.
A base oil ship from ExxonMobil refineries in Europe ships base oils for the lubricants to Naantali monthly. At the factory different additional ingredients are added to the base oil to create different types of end products. The ingredients vary according to the desired qualities of the lubricant.
The ExxonMobil Finland Oy Ab factory in Naantali was founded in 1957. The site was chosen because the port had a well-situated, ready-made landing place for the base oil ship. The existence of a year-round free channel that ensured the uninterrupted shipping of oil to the factory also weighted in the decision. The channel in Naantali stays open and ice-free even in the coldest winters and the port is accessible in any weather. The ingredients needed in the process are shipped to the harbor in sea containers and empty barrels can be transported quickly from Sweden on the boats of a cooperation partner sailing to the port.
