Fincantieri goes back to Brodosplit for support

The Croatian shipyard and the Italian shipbuilding group have signed two new contracts for the construction of grand blocks for mega cruisers being built in Italy

Brodosplit and Fincantieri have signed two new contracts for the construction of fitted sections (grand blocks) for mega cruisers, which are being built in Italian shipyards, under the Agreement on long-term business and technical cooperation already set up, dating back to 2014, during which Brodosplit has built and delivered grand blocks for 3 mega cruisers being built in their shipyards. On the basis of the above-mentioned, as well as other contracts in preparation, the Croatian company will generate 5 million Euro monthly income to bring profit of 500 million Kunas a year in the period 2019-2025.

The first contract concerns the construction of sections over 1,200 tons of steel equipped with pipe fitting and locksmith components as well as electrical routing with delivery deadline in the first half of 2019. This includes front part of the hull which will be loaded on a barge and towed to the Italian shipyard where it will be mounted on the ship.

With the second contract Brodosplit has been awarded a project for building the central section of the ship whose overall length exceeds 100 meters and weight 3,000 tons of steel, with delivery deadline in the second half of 2019. The construction will be watertight on both sides and self-towed to the Italian shipyard.
