cruise ship touristsFour South Australian shipbuilders have the opportunity to place tenders to construct three cruise ship blocks in Adelaide next year for a SEA 5000 contender.

 

As reported by Defence Connect in September, the cruise ship blocks would be integrated into Fincantieri cruise ships under construction across the Italian company’s network of 20 shipyards across the globe.

 

ASC Shipbuilding, Adelaide Ship Construction International, MG Engineering and Ottoway Engineering have been invited to submit offers for this project.

 

Dario Deste who is the Chairman of Fincantieri Australia feels that the purpose of this initiative would be to start-up the shipbuilding operations in Adelaide and also gain familiarity with regional partners leading into the start of the project of Future Frigate.

 

Deste then went on to add that the size and strength of their operations make it possible for them to invite Australian brands to work on their international projects.

 

He thinks that this would present a unique opportunity to strengthen their relations with partners, sub-contractors, partners and importantly for the industry, opening up an export market for them.

 

Fincantieri is among the largest builders of cruise ships in the world and has constructed over 79 cruise ships for cruise liners including P&O Cruises, Viking Ocean Cruises, Costa and Carnival. But it is yet to be clear as to which cruise line the ship blocks are being constructed for.
