The final sprint of the Ocean Globe race begins

The Spirit of Helsinki boat sailed the third leg of the Ocean Globe Race from Auckland in New Zealand to Punta del Este in South America. The crew landed in Uruguay on Friday a week ago. The boat arrived at the stage harbour in second place after a tough race, as the French boat Pen Duick VI arrived already on Wednesday.

Repair construction products for ventilation

During this period, the share of renovation construction is increasing, and many operators are now investing in renovation construction. Shopping centers, business premises, schools, and educational institutions are repaired and fundamentally improved. At the same time, we want to improve indoor air conditions.

Now, companies want to invest in a high-class indoor climate that is draft-free, noise-free, and works with a high mixing ratio without forgetting the appearance of the ventilation equipment.
