Estonian marine group joins ICOMIA

The Association of Estonian Marine Industries joined the International Council of Marine Industry Associations as the group’s 37th member.

The Association of Estonian Marine Industries, established in 1997 and based on Estonian island Saaremaa in the Baltic Sea, includes companies in the shipbuilding, off-shore and related sectors.

Estonian shipbuilding centers around small-series production and one-off projects and 80 percent of Estonian-made vessels are exported to markets around the globe.

The joining of Estonian MIA brings ICOMIA’s number of full members to 37 across 35 countries, the largest it has ever had in its history, the group said in a statement.
