Northern European firm Western Shipyard is considering buying Baltija Shipyard in Estonia, the company has announced.

VLG will wait for the official sale announcement by AP Møller-Maersk, the company said.

Maersk decided to sell the Estonian shipyard following the announcement to halt shipbuilding activities at the Odense Steel Shipyard in Denmark.

VLG is owned by the BLRT Group based in Estonia.
