The growing size of cargo ships and tankers puts pressure on using the fairway depths to the fullest extent. Fairway design plays a key role in securing safe and efficient seafaring.
The service can cover the entire design process from the first drafts of required official documentation all the way to the final documents required for official approval for a completed fairway or port area. Meritaito can even take control of the entire process from designing the port or fairway to construction project management and contract supervision.
Meritaito has extensive experience of fairway designing in challenging conditions e.g. narrow and shallow waterways in an arctic climate. The Meritaito design team has experience from design projects regarding dozens of fairways and channels with a combined length of hundreds of kilometers.
Meritaito Ltd, the leading Finnish marine survey service and infrastructure management company, will become a fully owned subsidiary of the icebreaking and maritime services company Arctia Ltd.

More diversified services will improve competitiveness in the constantly tightening international market.
