ABB named this delegation to receive the Finnish Engineering Award on the technology's behalf. ABB believes that the members of this delegation played significant roles in the Azipod system’s international success.
ABB builds the Azipod azimuth thruster units in Helsinki’s Vuosaari, assembles the turning systems that go inside of the ship in Hamina and produces smaller Azipod units of under 7.5 MW in Shanghai, China. ABB's product development also takes place in Vuosaari.
