Telva and Light Structures sign sales agreement

Telva is proud to start representing Norwegian Light Structures’ products in Finland. Light Structures is the worlds’ leading supplier of fiber optic condition monitoring systems. The systems can be used for example for monitoring general hull stress.



We have switched to geothermal heat

Telva continues to invest in emission-free energy. Our solar panel system on the roof of our office has been in use for several years, we changed all our indoor lighting to energy-efficient LED lighting, and as the latest measure we have switched to geothermal heating.
According to calculations, with the help of the investment, we will reduce the need for energy by approximately 125,000 kWh annually and at the same time reduce our carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 25,000 kg.
We will closely monitor the behavior of electricity consumption after the transition to geothermal heat, the goal is to keep the increase in consumption as small as possible.
The project succeeded almost on schedule, which can be considered a success in this market situation. The work and installations were handled in a friendly and neat manner throughout the project. Thanks to Lämpödiileri for a good project!

Long cooperation

On June 9, 1952, Telva’s founder Walter Berger signed a cooperation agreement with Daimler-Benz Aktiengesellschaft for the import of marine diesel engines to Finland. 70 years have passed since the signing of the agreement.

Many things have changed over the years, but still Telva supplies MTU’s marine diesels to Finnish official boats – with the world’s oldest continuously valid distributor agreement.




iXblue as part of the Squadron 2020 project

The Finnish Navy has chosen iXblue, represented by Telva, to deliver Phins series inertial navigation systems and Netans data distribution units as part of the Navy’s Squadron 2020 project. In the project, the Finnish shipyard Rauma Marine Constructions (RMC) will build four Ostrobothnia-class multipurpose corvettes. Together with the current Hamina-class missile boats, they form the backbone of the Finnish Navy. Furuno will supply the future ships with a fully integrated navigation system. The choice is based on the excellent navigation ability and effective connectivity with weapon systems of iXblue’s Phins series. In addition, important features of the Phins series gyroscope are very good directional control, slow position drift and proven compatibility with the combat system and its subsystems. The Phins series is an inertial navigation system based on fiber optic gyro technology. The fiber optic roller has no moving parts, so it does not need proactive maintenance, resulting in significant savings for users in the long term. iXblue has continuously improved the accuracy and reliability of these buoys, thanks to which the navies of more than 40 countries have chosen iXblue’s navigation solutions for their ships. Netans, on the other hand, is a COTS-based data distribution unit used for data type conversion and data transfer. “Sincere thanks to Furuno, RMC and the Finnish Navy for their trust in iXblue’s inertial solutions. These solutions have shown excellent performance at high latitudes. We look forward to working with Furuno, the leading fleet system integrator, to enable these capabilities to be used in the Finnish Navy’s future Ostrobothnia-class multipurpose corvettes,” says Enzo Aldrovandi, iXblue’s sales manager.
